|Statement of Purpose|
This bill accomplishes two things. First, it provides a fiscal year 2000 supplemental appropriation for the Bureau of Occupational Licenses to fund the administrative costs of the Board of Acupuncture. Second, it amends 54-4705, Idaho Code, to delete the board of acupuncture fund and provide that all fees received by the Board of Acupuncture be paid to the Bureau of Occupational Licenses and be deposited in the state treasury to the credit of the occupational licenses fund. All costs and expenses incurred by the Board of Acupuncture will be charged against and paid from the occupational licenses fund.
There is no impact to the General Fund. This supplemental appropriation provides the Bureau of Occupational Licenses with $12,000 in dedicated fund spending authority to provide the Board of Acupuncture with administrative, investigative, legal, and fiscal services. Also, because the board of acupuncture fund will no longer exist, the dedicated fees received by the Board of Acupuncture will go directly into the occupational licenses fund subject to yearly appropriation by the legislature.
