Statement of Purpose / Fiscal Impact

                STATEMENT OF PURPOSE 
                      RS 09343 
     The purpose of this proposal is to update the definition of ",displaced homemaker'
     in Idaho Code 39-5002, Equal opportunity for Displaced Homemaker Act, to
     include single parents. The term "displaced-homemaker' was coined in the early
     1970's to describe an individual who had not worked outside the home and who, 
     because of the loss of the major financial support of the family, had to enter the
     labor market for the first time to support the family. With societal changes during
     the past twenty years, the number of individuals who meet this definition has
     declined. In their place is a growing number of single parents who are heads 
     of household, who are unable to make a wage sufficient to support themselves and
     their families, and who need employment skills in order to earn a living. The
     updated definition would be consistent with the population actually being served
     by the Centers for New Directions. 
                    FISCAL IMPACT 
     There would be no fiscal impact in terms of increased fees or funding. There
     would be normal expenses associated with amending Idaho Code.
