SUMMARY
Synopsis of Bill
House Bill 393 appropriates $25 thousand from the general fund to the Local Government Divi-
sion (LGD) of the Department of Finance and Administration (DFA) in FY07 to assist the Angel
Fire transit program.
FISCAL IMPLICATIONS
The appropriation of $25 thousand contained in this bill is a recurring expense to the general
fund. Any unexpended or unencumbered balance remaining at the end of FY07 would revert to
the general fund.
SIGNIFICANT ISSUES
DFA indicated funding from the Federal Transit Authority (FTA) for the Job Access and Reverse
Commute (JARC) grant program will be discontinued for the transportation service program for
the Village of Angel Fire. Job Access projects develop transportation services that connect wel-
fare recipients and other low income persons to jobs and other employment related services. The
funds that are available for this program will be expended by June 30, 2006. HB393 would re-

store funding to keep in place the public transportation route for Mora. This route provides pub-
lic transportation to persons who are eligible for the Welfare-to-Work transportation service.
DFA also noted that, if funding is not appropriated, Angel Fire will not be able to provide ade-
quate public transportation to the community and surrounding areas. Specifically, this funding
would go towards continuing the Mora route. The route goes from Mora to Angel Fire and then
back to Mora. It provides public transportation to eligible participants who qualify under the
Welfare-to-Work Program.
ADMINISTRATIVE IMPLICATIONS
DFA can administer this appropriation with existing staff.
