Statement of Purpose / Fiscal Impact

Statement of Purpose

This bill provides additional fiscal year 2002 funding in the amount of $3,982,500 from the General Fund and $1,038,300 from the Fire Suppression Deficiency Fund to the Idaho Department of Lands for fire suppression.



Fiscal Note

Idaho Code, 38-131 and 38-131A authorize the state board of land commissioners to approve deficiency warrants to cover the costs of fire suppression on state and private forest and rangelands under the protection of the Department of Lands and Timber Protective Associations. There were 410 fires which burned 4,615 acres during the 2001 fire season. This bill reimburses the deficiency warrant fund from the General Fund and provides spending authority for reimbursements received from other states or federal agencies for assistance Idaho provided to them.
