To: All Senate members
Subject: Reducing costs at state owned and state leased facilities
We will be introducing legislation that will require Executive and Independent Agencies to report their space usage to the Department of General Services on an annual basis. The report of each Executive and Independent Agency must include, at minimum, the following information:
  • Whether the state facility is state-owned or leased;
  • Whether the state facility is occupied or vacant;
  • The size of the facility as measured in square feet;
  • The total expenditures for utilities per facility over the preceding twelve months;
  • The amount of rent paid for the preceding twelve months for any facility that is leased;
  • The purpose of each facility;
  • Recommendations on how each executive agency or independent agency can reduce their overall costs.

This legislation will be an important step towards establishing a baseline in order to significantly reduce costs in running the state’s Executive and Independent Agencies.

If you have any questions regarding the legislation, please contact Joshua J. Paul in Senator Argall’s Office at 717-787-2637 or Ryan M. Dellinger in Senator Vulakovich’s Office at 717-787-6538.

Introduced as SB1260
