6 amended to read as follows:
7 44-2101A. DEFINITIONS. As used in this chapter:
8 (1) "Administrator" means the administrator of the division of building
9 safety of the state of Idaho.
10 (2) "Board" means the manufactured housing board established in section
11 44-2104, Idaho Code.

42 vides service, repair or tear down of manufactured or mobile homes.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
2007 House Bill No. 100 revised the definition of “Responsible
managing employee,” inadvertently leaving out some practitioners
who traditionally were covered by this definition. This has
adversely affected some service providers. Adding additional
language to the existing definition corrects this problem.
