 Fifty-fifth Legislature                  Second Regular Session - 2000
                              IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
                             HOUSE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION NO. 50
                                 BY STATE AFFAIRS COMMITTEE
  1                               A CONCURRENT RESOLUTION
  5    Be It Resolved by the Legislature of the State of Idaho:
  6        WHEREAS, the Idaho House of Representatives considered House Bill No. 538,
  7    As  Amended, which would have provided for an election by a city under certain
  8    circumstances if residents of the area proposed to be annexed voiced a certain
  9    level of opposition; and
 10        WHEREAS, representatives of the Association of Idaho Cities agreed to meet
 11    and confer regarding this important issue of annexation during the legislative
 12    interim; and
 13        WHEREAS, annexation, along with the planning process contained in  Chapter
 14    65,  Title  67, Idaho Code,  deserves to be studied as the Comprehensive Plan-
 15    ning Act is over 25 years old and could stand to be reviewed to  modernize  it
 16    so that it is a vital, useful  tool for the future; and
 17        WHEREAS,  the subject of city annexation and areas of city impact has been
 18    a topic of discussion throughout the state and  has  generated  great  contro-
 19    versy; and
 20        WHEREAS,  other states have innovative ways of planning and ways of manag-
 21    ing growth and also have alternative forms of government that  are  innovative
 22    and modern and deserve review.
 23        NOW,  THEREFORE,  BE IT RESOLVED by the members of the Second Regular Ses-
 24    sion of the Fifty-fifth Idaho Legislature, the House  of  Representatives  and
 25    the  Senate  concurring therein, that the Legislative Council is authorized to
 26    appoint a committee to undertake and complete a study of   the state's  annex-
 27    ation  laws  as  well  as the Local Planning Act and a review of other state's
 28    laws and mechanisms for planning, annexation and alternative  forms  of  local
 29    government.  The Legislative Council shall determine the number of legislators
 30    and  membership from each house appointed to the committee and shall authorize
 31    the committee to receive input, advice  and  assistance  from  interested  and
 32    affected parties who are not members of the Legislature.
 33        BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that nonlegislative members of the committee may be
 34    appointed  by  the cochairs of the committee who are appointed by the Legisla-
 35    tive Council. Nonlegislative members of the advisory committee  shall  not  be
 36    reimbursed  from legislative funds for per diem, mileage or other expenses and
 37    shall not have voting privileges regarding the committee's recommendations  or
 38    proposed legislation.
 39        BE  IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Legislature recommends that no city shall
 40    begin forced annexation proceedings until the committee  completes  its  study
 41    and deliberations.
 42        BE  IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the committee shall report its findings, rec-
 43    ommendations and proposed legislation, if any, to the First Regular Session of
 44    the Fifty-sixth Idaho Legislature.
