In addition to the restructuring the commission, this legislation adds a new duty. In addition to the four duties currently assigned, the commission will be tasked with annually compiling, publishing and reporting on the ten (10) most hazardous segments of state highways in Idaho. The commission will additionally be tasked with suggesting recommendations on how to improve safety conditions on each of the identified segments. FISCAL NOTE This legislation will have no impact on the general fund. It is assumed that passage of this legislation will reduce current costs to the Traffic Safety Commission, as membership on the commission will be reduced from fifteen to eleven members.
