                                      BY MR. SPEAKER
               Requested by: Division of Building Safety, Electrical Bureau

 1                                        AN ACT

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

 9    unless revoked or suspended as herein provided, may be  renewed  at  any  time
10    during  the  month  of  July next following its issuance on the payment of the
11    renewal fee herein specified, and   proof  of  the  continuing  education

Statement of Purpose / Fiscal Impact

                       STATEMENT OF PURPOSE


Define electrician continuing education requirements in
statute and make them a condition of renewal rather than
grounds for suspension. Continuing education for electricians
has been required since 1990 and has been a very successful
and well accepted program. The procedure for those who do not
comply is to suspend their license after appropriate
notification. If this were simply a condition of renewal (such
as the proper fee) the licensee would be able to renew upon
providing proof of continuing education. The person who failed
to comply would not be allowed to renew until proof of
continuing education was provided rather than being subjected
to license suspension.
