Statement of Purpose / Fiscal Impact


                     STATEMENT  OF  PURPOSE
                            RS 13467
Amend section 54-3203, Idaho Code, to increase the number of Board
members by one to include a lay member of the public. This proposal
responds to requests from the public to broaden representation of
the Board.







                         FISCAL  IMPACT
The impact on dedicated funds would be the travel expenses for
three board meetings a year for one board member.  This board does
not receive honorariums.
