 11    shall consist of six (6) members, to be appointed by  the  governor,  each  of
 12    whom  shall  be an architect, and shall have been a resident of and a lawfully
 13    practicing architect within the state of Idaho for a period of at  least  five
 14    (5)  years  next  before his appointment. At all times the board shall have at
 15    least one (1) member who is engaged primarily  in  professional  architectural
 16    education.
 17        2.  The board shall have, in addition to the powers conferred elsewhere in
 18    this chapter, the following powers and duties:
 19        a.  To  authorize,  by  written  agreement,  the  bureau  of  occupational
 20        licenses to act as its agent in its interest.
 21        b.  To  adopt, pursuant to the administrative procedure act, such rules as
 22        the board, in its discretion, deems necessary for the  administration  and
 23        enforcement of this chapter.

Statement of Purpose / Fiscal Impact

                      STATEMENT OF PURPOSE

                           RS 10918
The Idaho State Board of Architecture Examiners was authorized compensation
by the legislature in 1976. At that time 54-312(3), Idaho Code, authorized
each board member to be compensated in the amount of $35.00 per day for
those days spent conducting board business. That rate of compensation has
not changed during the 25 years since the original creation of the board.
The board spends an average of 12 days per year, away from their individual
practices, conducting board business. The requested increase to $75.00 per
day, while certainly not providing total compensation for a days work,
would help defray a more reasonable portion of the loss in income incurred
f or the benefit of Idaho s citizens. While those serving on the board do
so in the spirit of service to the public, and do not expect to be fully
compensated, such service should not put undue hardship on those who are
asked to provide such service.

                          FISCAL IMPACT

The Board of Architecture has six members and meets an average of twelve
times per year. If the compensation were to be raised from $35.00 to
$75.00, the result would be an annual increase of $3,100 after adding the
employers Social Security expense. License fees would not be affected by
the increase.
