STATEMENT OF PURPOSE RS09024 This legislation simplifies the distribution of fuel tax and vehicle registration fees. This also increases the percentage of funds to local units of government and law enforcement. This combines and consolidates the Highway Distribution Account and the Restricted Highway Fund. FISCAL NOTE Current distribution for FY2000 from the Highway Distribution Account and the Restricted Highway Fund is approximately $167.8 million to Idaho Transportation Department $110.5 million to local units of government and $ 13.4 million to Law Enforcement. This legislation would shift amounts to approximately $163.3 million to Idaho Transportation Department $110.9 million to local units of government and $ 17.5 million to Law Enforcement. FY 1999 appropriation is as follows: $163.3 million State $107.5 million local $ 13.0 million Law Enforcement This change in effect shifts this years increase in these two accounts from I.T.D. to State Police. Local units of government receive slightly more than they would when accounts were separate. CONTACT: Senator Evan Frasure Phone: 332-1315 STATEMENT OF PURPOSE/ FISCAL NOTE S1173
