Statement of Purpose / Fiscal Impact



                       STATEMENT OF PURPOSE

                            RS 17375C1

The proposed legislation provides revisions to Section 54-5001,
Idaho Code, adopting the 2006 codes in lieu of the 2003 versions,
which dovetails with the other 2006 International Codes that have
already been adopted; and provides the Idaho Heating, Ventilation,
and Air Conditioning Board the authority to adopt subsequent
editions of these codes.  Revisions to Section 54-5002, Idaho Code,
update the definition of a "farm" to be consistent with the
definition found in building codes utilized in Idaho.


                           FISCAL NOTE

There will be no fiscal impact from the passage of this
legislation.
