Amend existing statute to increase the annual renewal fee not
to exceed $225.00; delete and reserve Section 54-2303, Idaho
Code; and add an additional licensed psychologist board member
and increase the terms to four (4) years.

that will be effective January, 2000.
Anticipated revenue from the $25.00 increase:
213 licensed psychologists X $25.00 = $5,325.00
