REQUIRED EXPLANATION OF REQUEST
  The Ohio Air Quality Development Authority respectfully requests Controlling Board approval to increase appropriation authority in the amount of $129,813 in FY2018 and $129,813 in FY2019 to support OAQDA's operational needs.  
  OAQDA's projected operational expenses exceed current appropriation authority or at the current appropriation level.   We have a staff of five employees, which are all necessary to operate the agency.

The revenue source for Fund 4Z90 is a transfer from the Ohio EPA as directed by statute and interagency agreement. The OEPA funds are derived from Title V permit fees use of these fees to support small business assistance is mandated by the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990. The permit fees are based upon the annual actual air emissions reported by Title V permit holders. The average amount transferred to 4Z90 in the past three years has been $215,000.

This request is entirely non-GRF funding and well within the available cash balances.

OAQDA's work spans the state, and in the past two years, we have financed projects in 32 different House districts and 21 different Senate districts. We have issued $518 million in bond financing or refinancing of air quality projects.

In the FY2018-FY2019 biennium, OAQDA will continue to carry out its programmatic responsibilities efficiently and economically.
