 ||||              LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF IDAHO             ||||
Fifty-fourth Legislature                 Second Regular Session - 1998

                             IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

                            HOUSE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION NO. 33

                            BY REVENUE AND TAXATION COMMITTEE

 1                               A CONCURRENT RESOLUTION

 5    Be It Resolved by the Legislature of the State of Idaho:

 6        WHEREAS, it is in the interests of all citizens of Idaho that the tax sys-
 7    tem should be fair and equitable; and
 8        WHEREAS,  a  significant amount of money is received through taxation into
 9    the state treasury and returned to cities, counties  and  other  special  dis-
10    tricts through various revenue-sharing formulas; and
11        WHEREAS,  the  distribution  method  provided in Section 63-3638(e), Idaho
12    Code, is based on economic conditions in 1965, 1966 and 1967, which conditions
13    have changed substantially; and
14        WHEREAS, the formula for distribution of sales tax revenue was  originally
15    intended  as  a  short-term alternative to the business inventory tax, and was
16    not designed to endure as a permanent addition to the tax structure; and
17        WHEREAS, other formulas also distribute funds to the highway  system  from
18    state  revenue and provide significant support to the cities, counties, public
19    schools, community colleges, highway districts and  other  special  districts;
20    and
21        WHEREAS,  additional  grant and loan programs, revenue sharing, and shared
22    revenue sources are involved in water treatment programs, water and sewer sys-
23    tems, law enforcement, health and welfare programs, and many others; and
24        WHEREAS, there is little evidence that the formulas provide the  necessary
25    degree  of  consistency  and responsiveness to the actual needs which exist in
26    the local governmental units, and provide a fair and equitable program of rev-
27    enue sharing; and
28        WHEREAS, changes to established distribution formulas should be done in  a
29    deliberate  and cautious manner, with ample time for all interested parties to
30    present input and concerns, and with time to assemble and analyze  all  neces-
31    sary data.
32        NOW,  THEREFORE,  BE IT RESOLVED by the members of the Second Regular Ses-
33    sion of the Fifty-fourth Idaho Legislature, the House of  Representatives  and
34    the  Senate  concurring therein, that the Legislative Council is authorized to
35    appoint a committee to undertake and complete a study of the revenue  sharing,
36    grant  and  loan  programs and shared revenue sources which affect the cities,
37    counties and other special districts which deliver services to Idaho citizens.
38    The Legislative Council shall determine the number of legislators and  member-
39    ship  from  each house appointed to the Committee and shall authorize the Com-
40    mittee to receive input, advice and assistance from  interested  and  affected
41    parties who are not members of the legislature.
42        BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that nonlegislative members of the Committee may be
43    appointed  by  the Cochairs of the Committee who are appointed by the Legisla-

 1    tive Council. Nonlegislative members of the advisory committee  shall  not  be
 2    reimbursed  from legislative funds for per diem, mileage or other expenses and
 3    shall not have voting privileges regarding the Committee's recommendations  or
 4    proposed legislation.
 5        BE  IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Committee shall report its findings, rec-
 6    ommendations and proposed legislation, if any, to the First Regular Session of
 7    the Fifty-fifth Idaho Legislature.
