Statement of Purpose / Fiscal Impact

                   STATEMENT OF PURPOSE

                        RS 11269

The purpose of this legislation is to gain state recognition of 
the Great Western Trail as the Idaho segment of a trail extending 
from southern Arizona on the south to the Canadian border on the 
north. State recognition of this trail is a first and important 
step toward gaining national recognition of the Great Western 
Trail and the addition of that trail to the National Trail System.

                      FISCAL IMPACT

There will be no additional cost to the State of Idaho. The trail 
is currently being maintained from state funds received from 
snowmobile registration. It is expected that the recognition of 
this trail will have a positive impact on the tourism industry in 
all of eastern Idaho.
