 Fifty-fifth Legislature                  Second Regular Session - 2000
                              IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
                             HOUSE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION NO. 55
                                BY APPROPRIATIONS COMMITTEE
  1                               A CONCURRENT RESOLUTION
  5    Be It Resolved by the Legislature of the State of Idaho:
  6        WHEREAS, the Department of Health and Welfare, Idaho State School and Hos-
  7    pital,  a licensed intermediate care facility for persons with mental retarda-
  8    tion, is required to provide services, programs and  living  facilities  which
  9    will enhance the client's independence, self-sufficiency and provide for their
 10    health needs and personal development in a safe and secure environment; and
 11        WHEREAS,  the  legislative  interim  committee appointed to study this and
 12    related issues determined that the clients now being referred and admitted for
 13    treatment, stabilization and transitional services are  individuals  with  the
 14    most difficult behavioral challenges without options for community care in the
 15    private  sector because they are too dangerous and aggressive or their medical
 16    needs are too complex and demanding; and
 17        WHEREAS, the living units at the Idaho State School and Hospital were  not
 18    designed  or  built to house clients with these complex behavioral challenges,
 19    the facilities are not a safe living environment for either clients or  staff,
 20    and  the  facilities do not allow for alternatives in health care licensure to
 21    achieve efficiencies and economies in treatment and staffing  or  alternatives
 22    in treatment strategies; and
 23        WHEREAS,  the  Department  of Health and Welfare commissioned an architec-
 24    tural study which determined the need to  replace  two  functionally  obsolete
 25    buildings which house the majority of the clients with a new multibed facility
 26    that  meets  current  standards established for this type of facility together
 27    with infrastructure and site improvements to accommodate and enhance  services
 28    to clients now served; and
 29        WHEREAS,  it  is  imperative and necessary that this facility be placed in
 30    service at the earliest possible time to meet the  public  health  and  safety
 31    needs.
 32        NOW,  THEREFORE,  BE IT RESOLVED by the members of the Second Regular Ses-
 33    sion of the Fifty-fifth Idaho Legislature, the House  of  Representatives  and
 34    the Senate concurring therein, that the Legislature hereby authorizes and pro-
 35    vides  approval  for  the  Department  of  Health and Welfare to enter into an
 36    agreement or agreements with the Idaho State Building  Authority,  under  such
 37    terms  and conditions as may be reasonable and necessary, to provide such liv-
 38    ing and treatment facilities as necessary to accommodate up to sixty beds  and
 39    financing thereof on the site of the existing campus of the Idaho State School
 40    and Hospital.
 41        BE  IT  FURTHER  RESOLVED  that  this resolution constitutes authorization
 42    required by the provisions of Section 67-6410, Idaho Code.

Statement of Purpose / Fiscal Impact

                 STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
                      RS 010310 
     This concurrent resolution provides authorization to the Department of Health and
     Welfare to enter into agreements, as may be necessary, with the Idaho State
     Building Authority to finance construction of replacement living and treatment
     facilities for high risk juveniles and adults. The proposed facilities would replace
     two obsolete and programmatically unsafe buildings, Staff House and Building 6,
     at the Idaho State School and Hospital campus at Nampa. Fifty-seven high-risk
     individuals currently housed in these existing buildings cannot safely and
     effectively live in and receive treatment in the community without a period of
     intensive treatment and transition services at the Idaho State School and Hospital.
     To provide for the safety of these persons and the more vulnerable
     developmentally disabled persons who are medically fragile and profoundly
     retarded, and staff, new buildings that address the specific needs of this high-risk,
     aggressive population are needed. 
     The total building cost would be as outlined below:
