Statement of Purpose / Fiscal Impact

                       STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
                            RS 12444C1

The purpose of this legislation is to create a special motor
vehicle license plate for Boy Scout youth programs in Idaho.

Consistent with other special license plates, in the first year
those vehicle owners purchasing special plates pay $35 to the
Idaho Transportation Department(ITD). ITD keeps $10 to cover
costs with the remaining $25 being used for the specified
charitable purposes.

In the second year and beyond, license holders pay $25 per annum
with the amount going for charitable purposes being reduced to
                         FISCAL IMPACT

ITD is compensated for all of its costs.  Therefore, there is no
fiscal impact.  There are 34,685 Boy Scouts and 18,642 adult
leaders in four Idaho Boy Scout Councils. It is expected that a
high percentage of the parents of Boy Scouts will purchase these
license plates for their vehicles.
