|||| LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF IDAHO |||| Fifty-fifth Legislature First Regular Session - 1999 Moved by Riggs Seconded by Davis IN THE SENATE SENATE AMENDMENTS TO S.B. NO. 1229 1 AMENDMENT TO SECTION 3 2 On page 2 of the printed bill, in line 36, following " a " 3 insert: " public school teacher ". 4 AMENDMENT TO SECTION 7 5 On page 4, delete line 48 and insert: "school media specialist, one (1) 6 elementary public school teacher, and one (1) secondary public school 7 teacher.".
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE RS 09103 The purpose of this legislation is to modify the membership and clarify the duties of the Idaho Council for Technology in Learning (ICTL). The bill changes the membership of the committee and allows the Superintendent of Public Instruction, the Governor and the State Board of Education to appoint various members. Four members of the Legislature, two from the House and two from the Senate are also members. The bill then clarifies that the ICTL will be the technology advisory body to the State Board of Education for both K-12 education and higher education, instead of its current role of specializing in K-12 technology. The final change is to establish standing committees of ICTL, one to specialize in K-12 and the other to specialize in higher education and other matters, to report and advise the ICTL on its various duties. FISCAL NOTE The fiscal impact of the present Idaho Council for Technology in Learning is $140,000.00 annually. With the passage of this Legislation, the new ICTL budget would require an additional $39,000.00 per year. This would increase a .5 secretary to full time and pay expenses for the additional subcommittees. Total annual budget would be $173,000.00. The funds are taken from the ICTL budget and would not affect the General Fund. CONTACT: Senator Mel Richardson 332-1332 STATEMENT OF PURPOSE/ FISCAL NOTE S1229
