9 65-107. VETERANS CEMETERY MAINTENANCE FUND. (1) There is hereby created
10 in the state treasury a fund to be known as the "veterans cemetery maintenance
11 fund" to which shall be deposited the revenues derived from the program fees
12 for special veterans motor vehicle license plates as provided in section
13 49-418, Idaho Code, and any other moneys as may be provided by law. Interest
14 earned on idle moneys in the veterans cemetery maintenance fund shall be paid
15 to such fund.
16 (2) Moneys in the fund shall be used exclusively for the purposes of
17 operating and maintaining a state veterans cemetery, and moneys shall be con-
18 tinuously appropriated for such purposes.
19 (3) The administrator of the division of veterans services shall have the
20 authority and the responsibility, with the advice and approval of the Idaho
21 veterans affairs commission created in section 65-201, Idaho Code, to adminis-
22 ter moneys for the purposes indicated.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
The purpose of this proposal is to provide that a portion of the special program
fees for veterans motor vehicle license plates shall be deposited to the Veterans
Cemetery Maintenance Fund, to create the fund and provide for purposes and
administration of monies in the fund within the authority of the veterans affairs
commission, as defined in Section 65-201.
There should be no fiscal impact on the general fund, as proceeds from the special
plates should cover costs of maintenance of the cemetery.
