|Statement of Purpose|
This trailer bill provides $250,000 in funding for additional staffing to the Idaho State Department of Agriculture to handle the workload caused by passage of H262aaS, the odor management legislation. H262aaS designated the Department of Agriculture as the lead agency responding to odor complaints lodged against agricultural operations. Furthermore, the department will regulate and approve the design and construction of liquid waste management systems. If the department determines that the agricultural operation is generating odors in excess of levels associated with accepted practices, then the operator must develop and submit an odor management plan. The department must approve the plan and periodically review compliance with the plan.
This appropriation provides $250,000 from the State General Fund to the Idaho State Department of Agriculture for fiscal year 2002 in addition to the regular appropriation. The appropriation funds $159,000 for three additional positions; $25,000 for travel, training, and administrative costs; and $66,000 for three trucks and three computers. The positions include one engineer and two technicians. One position will be stationed in Pocatello, one in Twin Falls, and one in Boise.
