4 Be It Enacted by the Legislature of the State of Idaho:
5 SECTION 1. That Section 54-1903, Idaho Code, be, and the same is hereby
6 amended to read as follows:
7 54-1903. EXEMPTIONS. This act shall not apply to:
8 (a) An authorized representative of the United States government, the

16 opment work incidental to their own business.
17 (d) The sale or installation of any finished products, materials or arti-
18 cles of merchandise, which are not actually fabricated into and do not become
19 a permanent fixed part of the structure.
20 (e) Any construction, alteration, improvement or repair of personal prop-
22 (f) Any construction, alteration, improvement or repair carried on within
23 the limits and boundaries of any site or reservation, the title of which rests
24 in the federal government.

36 (k) Any construction, operation or repair carried on in response to an

39 declared by a governing body (city or county) in anticipation of a governor's
40 declaration, for a period of time not to exceed seven (7) calendar days.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
Any public works construction project over $5,000 requires the
contractor to have a public works license.
The purpose of this bill is to change the limit to projects
over $10,000. The proposed limit of $10,000 simply reflects
inflation over the past 20 years. The last time the limit was
adjusted was 1980, when the limit went from $1,000 to $5,000.
There would be no fiscal impact to the state general fund. There
could be modest savings to cities by having more competition for
public works projects.
