Statement of Purpose / Fiscal Impact

Statement of Purpose

This supplemental appropriation to the Department of Agriculture provides $104,500 for Mormon cricket baiting, $9,900 for gypsy moth survey, and $15,100 for exotic pest survey for a total of $129,500. The appropriation includes $27,100 for personnel costs and $102,400 for operating expenditures to retire deficiency warrants authorized by the Board of Examiners for agricultural pest control.



Fiscal Note

Although the annual deficiency warrants for agricultural pest control are traditionally paid from the General Fund, this appropriation reimburses the deficiency warrant fund from the Pesticide Fund on a one-time basis. Every pesticide which is sold in the state of Idaho must be registered with the Department of Agriculture. The registrant pays an annual fee as prescribed by rule. The fund balance at the end of FY 2002 for that fund was $1,178,900. This appropriation covers costs incurred between November 2001 and June 30, 2002. Future deficiency warrants will be on a fiscal year basis.
