|||| LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF IDAHO |||| Fifty-fifth Legislature Second Regular Session - 2000 Moved by Ipsen Seconded by King-Barrutia IN THE SENATE SENATE AMENDMENT TO H.B. NO. 575 1 AMENDMENT TO SECTION 1 2 On page 1 of the printed bill, in line 37, following "parole." insert: 3 "The provisions of this subsection (g) shall be null, void and of no force 4 and effect on and after June 30, 2003.". 5 CORRECTION TO TITLE 6 On page 1, in line 4, following "OCCURRING" insert: "AND TO PROVIDE A SUN- 7 SET CLAUSE".
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE RS 09603C4 Current federal regulations prohibit persons convicted of a felony involving a controlled substance from receiving full benefits under section 115 of the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of lJ96, P.L. 104-193. The purpose of this legislation is to exercise a state's option of reversing or "opting out" of that restriction. Qualified felons would be eligible for benefits if they comply with the terms of a withheld judgement, probation, or parole. FISCAL NOTE There is no impact to the General Fund since benefits or payments for this small number of clients are funded with TANF (Temporary Assistance to Needy Families), block grants and USDA (U.S. Dept. of Agriculture) grant for food stamps.
