STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
The purpose of this proposed legislation is to allow owners of
registered motor vehicles to voluntarily contribute funds by
participating in a Special License Plate Program to be utilized by
the Sawtooth Society for maintaining and upgrading outdoor
recreation facilities within the Sawtooth National Recreation Area.
Such maintenance and upgrades will be for motorized and
non-motorized trails, camping facilities, bridges, restrooms,
parking areas, roads, boat launch facilities, and boat docks. The
Sawtooth Society will be on a reimbursement basis for the purposes
of meeting the objectives of the state trails plan, state boating
plan, or state comprehensive outdoor recreation and tourism plan
within the SNRA. The excess funds generated by the sale of the
license plates will be deposited in the parks and recreation fund
and will be administered by the Dept. of Parks and Recreation.
This proposed legislation will have no negative impact on the
general fund or other state or local budgets. Moneys received from
the sale of these license plates will cover costs associated with
the special plate program.
