STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
The Idaho State Capitol Building was constructed from 1905-1920.
There never has been a comprehensive restoration of the Capitol.
The Idaho State Capitol Commission is attempting to complete the
restoration of Idaho s Capitol Building in time for its
centennial celebration on July 3, 2005. In addition to other
private fund-raising efforts being pursued by the commission,
this legislation would allow the creation of a special Capitol
restoration license plate to help pay for Capitol renovations. A
Capitol license plate would allow Idaho citizens to contribute
funding to the restoration of their Capitol, and would help
spread awareness throughout the state of the Capitol restoration
This bill has no fiscal impact on the general fund. Based on
previous experience with the Timber and Wildlife special plate
programs, it is estimated that a specially designed Capitol
license plate would raise between $100,000 and $150,000 per year
for Capitol restoration efforts. This figure does not include the
$10 from each fee to cover lTD s cost of administration.
