Hospital Basic Services Preservation Fund.
(a) There is created in the State treasury the Hospital Basic Services Preservation Fund. The Fund shall be administered by the State Treasurer to collateralize loans from financial institutions for capital projects necessary to maintain certain basic services required for the efficient and effective operation of essential community hospital providers who otherwise may not be able to meet financial institution credit standards for issuance of a standard commercial loan. The Fund shall consist of all public and private moneys donated or transferred to the Fund for the purpose of enabling essential community hospitals to continue to provide basic quality health care services that are subject to and meet standards of need under the Health Facilities Planning Act. All public funds deposited into the Fund shall be subject to appropriation by the General Assembly.
(b) If the State Treasurer determines that any public moneys in the Hospital Basic Services Preservation Fund are no longer necessary to collateralize loans from financial institutions under this Section, the Treasurer may transfer any unobligated and unexpended moneys from the Hospital Basic Services Preservation Fund into the General Revenue Fund. If all amounts from every collateralization of basic service loans from eligible expenses related to completing, attaining, or upgrading basic services under existing agreements have been returned to the Hospital Basic Services Preservation Fund and have been transferred by the State Treasurer into the General Revenue Fund, the Treasurer shall file with the Index Department of the Office of the Secretary of State a declaration to that effect and shall notify the Clerk of the House of Representatives, the Secretary of the Senate, and the Legislative Reference Bureau of the filing of the declaration. Upon such filing and notification, this Act is repealed as provided in Section 30 of this Act.
