HOUSE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION NO. 50
BY STATE AFFAIRS COMMITTEE
1 A CONCURRENT RESOLUTION
2 STATING FINDINGS OF THE LEGISLATURE AND AUTHORIZING THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL TO
3 APPOINT A COMMITTEE TO UNDERTAKE AND COMPLETE A STUDY OF THE ANNEXATION
4 LAWS AND THE LOCAL PLANNING ACT.
5 Be It Resolved by the Legislature of the State of Idaho:
6 WHEREAS, the Idaho House of Representatives considered House Bill No. 538,
7 As Amended, which would have provided for an election by a city under certain
8 circumstances if residents of the area proposed to be annexed voiced a certain
9 level of opposition; and
10 WHEREAS, representatives of the Association of Idaho Cities agreed to meet
11 and confer regarding this important issue of annexation during the legislative
12 interim; and
13 WHEREAS, annexation, along with the planning process contained in Chapter
14 65, Title 67, Idaho Code, deserves to be studied as the Comprehensive Plan-
15 ning Act is over 25 years old and could stand to be reviewed to modernize it
16 so that it is a vital, useful tool for the future; and
17 WHEREAS, the subject of city annexation and areas of city impact has been
18 a topic of discussion throughout the state and has generated great contro-
19 versy; and
20 WHEREAS, other states have innovative ways of planning and ways of manag-
21 ing growth and also have alternative forms of government that are innovative
22 and modern and deserve review.
23 NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED by the members of the Second Regular Ses-
24 sion of the Fifty-fifth Idaho Legislature, the House of Representatives and
25 the Senate concurring therein, that the Legislative Council is authorized to
26 appoint a committee to undertake and complete a study of the state's annex-
27 ation laws as well as the Local Planning Act and a review of other state's
28 laws and mechanisms for planning, annexation and alternative forms of local
29 government. The Legislative Council shall determine the number of legislators
30 and membership from each house appointed to the committee and shall authorize
31 the committee to receive input, advice and assistance from interested and
32 affected parties who are not members of the Legislature.
33 BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that nonlegislative members of the committee may be
34 appointed by the cochairs of the committee who are appointed by the Legisla-
35 tive Council. Nonlegislative members of the advisory committee shall not be
36 reimbursed from legislative funds for per diem, mileage or other expenses and
37 shall not have voting privileges regarding the committee's recommendations or
38 proposed legislation.
39 BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Legislature recommends that no city shall
40 begin forced annexation proceedings until the committee completes its study
41 and deliberations.
42 BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the committee shall report its findings, rec-
43 ommendations and proposed legislation, if any, to the First Regular Session of
44 the Fifty-sixth Idaho Legislature.
