|||| LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF IDAHO |||| Fifty-fifth Legislature Second Regular Session - 2000 Moved by Ringo Seconded by Zimmermann IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES HOUSE AMENDMENT TO H.B. NO. 404 1 AMENDMENTS TO SECTION 1 2 On page 1 of the printed bill, in line 22, delete "livable wage" and 3 insert: "living"; and in line 25, delete "livable wage" and insert: "living".
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.
