  1                                        AN ACT
  7        FUNDS.
  8    Be It Enacted by the Legislature of the State of Idaho:
  9        SECTION  1.  There is hereby appropriated from the Idaho Millennium Income

 11    payments  as  specified  in Section 2 of this act for the period July 1, 2001,
 12    through June 30, 2002.
 13        SECTION 2.  Of the amount appropriated to the State Treasurer for  trustee
 14    and  benefit  payments  in Section 1 of this act, there is hereby appropriated
 15    from the Idaho Millennium Income Fund to the following programs for the period
 16    July 1, 2001, through June 30, 2002:
 17        (a)  $506,500 for the Public Health Districts to continue tobacco use ces-
 18        sation programs statewide through the Public Health Districts of Idaho and
 19        other nonprofit entities such as hospitals, primary care clinics and  vol-
 20        unteer  organizations. The tobacco use cessation programs should be avail-
 21        able to any Idaho citizen, with primary emphasis  on  youth  and  pregnant
 22        women. The program shall include strong evaluation measures including, but
 23        not  limited to, the number of programs funded, the number of participants
 24        and quit rates.
 25        (b)  $735,000 for the Catastrophic Health Care Cost Program  for  tobacco-
 26        related disease treatment as determined by a physician, by way of reducing
 27        the county deductible payment pursuant to Section 3 of this act.
 28        (c)  $500,000  for  the  Bureau  of  Health Promotion in the Department of
 29        Health and Welfare for targeted tobacco counter-marketing  programs,  spe-
 30        cific  to Idaho, and to be matched by private industry funds on at least a
 31        one-to-one basis.
 32        (d)  $170,000 for the Idaho Supreme Court for youth courts and  community-
 33        based  programs in the judicial districts that address tobacco and/or sub-
 34        stance abuse. Of the amount specified, $50,000 will be used for  the  Buhl
 35        School District Substance Abuse Pilot Program.
 36        (e)  $200,000  for the Children's Trust Account Board in the Department of
 37        Health and Welfare to expand youth-asset building activities to more Idaho
 38        communities.
  1        (f)  $150,000 for the Idaho Supreme Court to expand  the  status  offender
  2        pilot  program  into  other judicial districts to identify high-risk youth
  3        and provide services and monitoring aimed at stopping and deescalating the
  4        cycle toward incarceration.
  5        (g)  $400,000 for the Public Health Services Division within  the  Depart-
  6        ment  of  Health and Welfare for coordinating efforts to reduce adolescent
  7        pregnancy through a media campaign to raise awareness  of  the  human  and
  8        societal risks associated with adolescent pregnancy.
  9        (h)  $95,000  for  the  Center for Health Policy at Boise State University
 10        for surveillance and evaluation. This will be a cooperative  effort  among
 11        Boise  State  University,  Idaho  State  University, and the University of
 12        Idaho whereby the universities would begin  evaluating  the  continuum  of
 13        substance  abuse  programs  in  Idaho. The Center for Health Policy should
 14        collaborate with the Department of Health and Welfare and  to  the  extent
 15        possible utilize the baseline data being developed by the Bureau of Health
 16        Promotion so as to avoid duplication in efforts.
 17                                                          GRAND TOTAL:  $2,756,500
 18        SECTION  3.  It  is  legislative  intent that the Catastrophic Health Care
 19    Cost Program Board use the funds appropriated in Section 2(b) of this  act  to
 20    temporarily  reduce  the  $10,000 deductible paid by counties for the costs of
 21    caring for indigent persons with tobacco-related  diseases.  The  Catastrophic
 22    Health  Care  Cost  Program Board shall be vested with the authority to define
 23    and determine which cases qualify for the reduced county  deductible,  subject
 24    to  the  provisions of this section. Notwithstanding the provisions of Chapter
 25    35, Title 31, Idaho Code, the Catastrophic Health Care Cost Program  Board  is
 26    hereby  granted the authority to enact these reductions for the period July 1,
 27    2001, through June 30, 2002, provided that the  additional  fiscal  impact  of
 28    these reductions on the Catastrophic Health Care Cost Program shall not exceed
 29    the amount appropriated in Section 2(b) of this act.
 30        SECTION  4.  It  is  legislative intent that if the total amount of moneys
 31    appropriated in Section 2 of this act is not available for appropriation, then
 32    the State Treasurer shall allocate such funds as are available to the  recipi-
 33    ents  listed  in Section 2 of this act, in the proportion that the amount each
 34    recipient's appropriation bears to the total amount appropriated.
