Summary as passed House: (all summaries)

Innovation and Entrepreneurship Investment Authority; powers. Provides the Innovation and Entrepreneurship Investment Authority (commonly known as the CIT) with the power to exclusively, or with any other person, form and otherwise develop, own, operate, govern, and otherwise direct the disposition of assets of separate legal entities, provided that such entities are formed solely for the purpose of managing and administering any assets disposed of by the Authority. The bill provides that these legal entities may include limited liability companies, limited partnerships, charitable foundations, real estate holding companies, investment holding companies, nonstock corporations, and benefit corporations and provides that any such entities shall be operated under the governance of the Authority. The bill sets out other requirements for such entities, including that they shall not be deemed to be a state or governmental agency, advisory agency, or public body or instrumentality and that no director, officer, or employee of any such entity shall be deemed to be an officer or employee for purposes of the State and Local Government Conflict of Interests Act. The bill does provide, however, that the Auditor of Public Accounts or his legally authorized representatives shall annually audit the financial accounts of the Authority and any such entity, provided that the working papers and records of the Auditor of Public Accounts relating to such audits shall not be subject to the provisions of the Virginia Freedom of Information Act. The bill also sets the quorum for the Authority's board of directors at nine and requires the reporting of certain additional information to the Chairmen of the House Committee on Appropriations and the Senate Committee on Finance, the Secretary of Technology, and the Director of Planning and Budget.
