State efficiency and restructuring account.
The legislature recognizes that efforts to restructure state operations to achieve greater efficiency are often impeded by the lack of a financing tool to support the transition and phase-down of state operations. The state efficiency and restructuring account is established in the state treasury to finance efforts to restructure state operations and achieve budget savings. Moneys from the account may be expended only after appropriation. As directed by the legislature, the state treasurer must transfer funds from specified accounts into the state efficiency and restructuring account to support appropriations from that account. The state treasurer must maintain a record of such transfers and must calculate repayment obligations to any accounts providing surplus funds for a term of eight years at an interest rate that is five-tenths of a [one] percent higher than the interest rate that the account would have earned without the transfer. The state treasurer must submit a report of all such repayment obligations to the office of financial management by September 1st of each year. The governor's budget request under RCW 43.88.060 must include sufficient funds to meet the biennial repayment obligation.
