  ||||              LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF IDAHO             ||||
 Fifty-fifth Legislature                  Second Regular Session - 2000
                              IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
                                     HOUSE BILL NO. 774
                                BY APPROPRIATIONS COMMITTEE
  1                                        AN ACT
  5    Be It Enacted by the Legislature of the State of Idaho:
  6        SECTION  1.  It  is the intent of the Legislature of the State of Idaho to
  7    join the twenty-three other states in the Union  which  have  already  honored
  8    their  World  War  II  veterans  by participating in the National World War II
  9    Memorial "dollar per veteran" campaign.
 10        The American Battle Monuments Commission was authorized by federal law  in
 11    1993 to establish the World War II Memorial. It will be located on seven acres
 12    on  the  National Mall in Washington, D.C., situated directly between the Lin-
 13    coln Memorial and the Washington Monument. Primary funding for the one hundred
 14    million dollar memorial must be raised from private contributions.
 15        "Millions served in uniform. Millions more served at home.  And  nearly  a
 16    half million gave their lives. They were ordinary people who, during World War
 17    II,  did  nothing  less than help save the world. Yet unbelievably there is no
 18    national memorial to honor their sacrifice. It is time to say thank-you. Dying
 19    for freedom isn't the worst that could happen. Being forgotten is." (Actor Tom
 20    Hanks)
 21        SECTION 2.  In addition to the appropriation made in  Section  1,  Chapter
 22    254,  Laws  of 1999, there is hereby appropriated from the General Fund to the
 23    Office of the Governor for the Military Division for trustee and benefit  pay-
 24    ments  the  sum of $66,000 for the period July 1, 1999, through June 30, 2000.
 25    This amount is equal to one dollar for each resident of the state of Idaho who
 26    served in the Armed Forces of the United States during World War II. Any other
 27    provision of law notwithstanding, the Military Division shall  disburse  these
 28    funds  upon enactment to the World War II Memorial Fund, 2300 Clarendon Boule-
 29    vard, Suite 501, Arlington, Virginia 22201.
 30        SECTION 3.  An emergency existing  therefor,  which  emergency  is  hereby
 31    declared to exist, this act shall be in full force and effect on and after its
 32    passage and approval.

Statement of Purpose / Fiscal Impact

                 STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
     This legislation, when passed, will add Idaho to the twenty-three states that have
     already passed legislation to establish a World War II Memorial in Washington,
     D.C. It will be the first national memorial dedicated to all who served in World
     War II and will acknowledge the commitment and achievement of the entire
     nation. The other states have already introduced legislation, or will be introducing
     legislation in the 2000 legislative session, to appropriate at least one dollar for
     each resident who served in the armed forces of the United States during World
     War II. 
     Funding sources for constructing the memorial are states, corporations, veteran's
     organizations and individuals. 
                     FISCAL NOTE 
     $66,000 will be expended from the General Fund in Fiscal Year 2000.
