Legislative Update #15-2013
We are very pleased to report that IAPD Platform bill SB 1637 (Kotowski, D. / Nekritz, E.) passed unanimously out of the House Agriculture and Conservation Committee earlier this week. Members will recall that this initiative would expedite the payment process under the OSLAD grant program by allowing agencies to receive 50% of the funds at the time the grant is awarded. The remainder of the funds would be distributed quarterly on a reimbursement basis. Currently, agencies do not receive reimbursement until the project is completed. SB 1637 is now on 3 rd reading in the House.
