HOUSE BILL NO. 34
BY MR. SPEAKER
Requested by: Certified Shorthand Reporters Board
1 AN ACT
2 RELATING TO CERTIFIED SHORTHAND REPORTERS; AMENDING SECTION 54-3110, IDAHO
3 CODE, TO INCREASE MAXIMUM RENEWAL FEES AND TO MAKE A TECHNICAL CORRECTION.
4 Be It Enacted by the Legislature of the State of Idaho:
5 SECTION 1. That Section 54-3110, Idaho Code, be, and the same is hereby
6 amended to read as follows:
7 54-3110. FEES. The board shall be entitled to charge and collect the fol-
8 lowing fees:
9 (a) The sum of fifty dollars ($50.00) as an application fee for any tem-
10 porary or regular certificate.
11 (b) The sum of fifty dollars ($50.00) as an examination fee for the
12 administration of the reporters' examination to any applicant.
13 (c) A sum not to exceed forty two hundred dollars ($ 40.200) as a renewal
14 fee for any regular or temporary certificate.
15 (d) A sum not to exceed forty dollars ($40.00) as a reinstatement fee for
16 any application for reinstatement of a temporary or regular certificate which
17 has been revoked or suspended.
18 (e) The failure to renew a certificate annually as provided in this sec-
19 tion and sections 54-3108 and 54-3109, Idaho Code, shall not deprive such per-
20 son of the right of renewal, but the fee to be paid for the renewal of a cer-
21 tificate after the due date shall be increased twenty per cent percent (20%)
22 for each month or fraction of a month that payment of renewal is delayed; pro-
23 vided, however, that the maximum fee for delayed renewal shall not exceed
24 twice the renewal fee for each year delinquent, but in no event more than one
25 four hundred dollars ($ 1400).
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
In order to permit the Board of Certified Shorthand Reporters to
continue to fulfill its statutory mandate to protect the public
welfare through licensing and enforcement activities, it is
necessary to increase the previously established cap on the amount
that the board can charge for renewal fees. Increasing the cap
rate on renewals will provide the board with the flexibility to
adopt, by rule, renewal fees that exceed the currently established
amounts. In addition, the legislation will increase the cap rate
for the total amount that may be charged in the event of a delayed
renewal from one hundred to four hundred dollars.
In the event that the board were to adopt a fee increasing the
amount of the renewal to the maximum cap amount proposed ($200.00),
given the current number of licensees (233), the amount of revenue
generated would be approximately $46,600.00.
