  9        SECTION 1.  That Section 1-506, Idaho Code, be, and  the  same  is  hereby

Statement of Purpose / Fiscal Impact


                                                                
                      STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
                                
                            RS 12514

     
     This bill is one of a series of bills that the Supreme Court has recommended in its annual
report to the Governor concerning defects or omissions in the laws, as required under article V,
section 25 of the Idaho Constitution.
     
     This bill amends Section 1-506 and repeals Section 1-507, Idaho Code, relating to the
printing of the Idaho Supreme Court reports, to remove outdated language requiring the printer to
furnish 400 copies of each volume of the Idaho Reports and to eliminate the requirement that the
printer furnish a five hundred dollar ($500) performance bond in respect to the printing contract.
     
     The Idaho Supreme Court reports contain a compilation of Supreme Court and Court of
Appeals decisions.  Based upon current demands, only 260 copies of the Idaho Reports are needed
and the present 400-copy requirement in the statute is therefore excessive.  The proposed amendment
will allow the printer to furnish a smaller number of volumes as determined by the Supreme Court. 
Section 1-507, Idaho Code, which requires the printer to submit a $500 bond for each numbered
volume, is repealed because the $500 amount established in 1903 is no longer realistic, practical, or
necessary to compel performance under the printing contract.


                            FISCAL NOTE

     This bill will have a positive impact on state or local funds.
