STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
This legislation authorizes the Idaho Department of Transportation
to issue an Idaho Agriculture specialty license plate.
The cost of the plate will be $35.00 for the initial issuance, and
$25.00 for each annual registration thereafter. These fees are in
addition to the regular registration. When issued, $25.00 of the
intial fee and $15.00 of the annual renewal fees will be deposited
in the state highway account to administer the program. The
balance, or $10.00, will be transferred by the State Treasurer to
the Idaho Ag in the Classroom Account created by the provisions of
Section 57-8l5, Idaho Code.
The design of the plate, together with the initial cost of the
program, is to be borne by the Idaho Ag in the Classroom Account.
Consequently, there will be no fiscal impact to the state highway
account or the state general fund.
