The Honorable Rick Billinger, Chairperson
Senate Committee on Ways and Means
300 SW 10th Avenue, Room 548-S
Topeka, Kansas 66612
Dear Senator Billinger:
SUBJECT: Fiscal Note for SB 395 by Senate Committee on Ways and Means
In accordance with KSA 75-3715a, the following fiscal note concerning SB 395 is
respectfully submitted to your committee.
SB 395 specifies that the Kansas Hospital Authority (Authority), whether acting on its own
or by joint venture, would not be allowed to purchase, lease, trade, exchange or otherwise acquire,
construct, repair, remodel, or renovate any real property or facility outside the State of Kansas
without prior approval of the Legislature by a legislative enactment or the Legislative Coordinating
Council (LCC) when the Legislature is not in session. Action by the LCC would require an
affirmative vote of five members. When reviewing proposed action by the Authority, specified in
the bill, and making decisions regarding such action, the LCC would be required to consider the
findings and mission of the Authority established in KSA 76-3302. The bill would take effect
upon its publication in the Kansas Register.
Both the University of Kansas and the University of Kansas Medical Center state the bill’s
enactment would not have a fiscal effect on either institution.


Adam C. Proffitt
Director of the Budget
