  ||||              LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF IDAHO             ||||
 Fifty-seventh Legislature                 First Regular Session - 2003
                                       IN THE SENATE
                                    SENATE BILL NO. 1054
                                BY TRANSPORTATION COMMITTEE
  1                                        AN ACT
  4    Be It Enacted by the Legislature of the State of Idaho:
  5        SECTION  1.  That  Section  40-106, Idaho Code, be, and the same is hereby
  6    amended to read as follows:
  7        40-106.  DEFINITIONS -- E.
  8        (1)  "Erect" means to construct, build,  raise,  assemble,  place,  affix,
  9    create,  paint,  draw  or  in any other way bring into being or establish, but
 10    does not include any of the foregoing activities when  performed  incident  to
 11    the  change of an advertising message or customary maintenance of a sign. With
 12    respect to certain easements held by the state  restricting  the  erection  of
 13    structures  on  certain  lands, the state of Idaho and the department shall be
 14    deemed to have waived such restrictions with regard only to each sign  erected
 15    prior to October 22, 1965.
 16        (2)  "Expenditure"  means the awarding of a contract, franchise or author-
 17    ity to another by a district, and every manner and means whereby  the  highway
 18    district  disburses  district  funds  or obligates itself to disburse district
 19    funds. "Expenditure" does not include disbursement of district funds to  regu-
 20    larly  employed  highway  district  employees, officials or agents, or for the
 21    performance of personal services to the district, or for  the  acquisition  of
 22    personal  property  through  a contract that has been competitively bid by the
 23    state of Idaho, one of its subdivisions, or an agency of the  federal  govern-
 24    ment.
 25        (3)  "Expense  of  the  public" means the expenditure of funds for roadway
 26    maintenance by any governmental agency, including funds expended by any agency
 27    of the federal government, so long as the agency allows public access over the
 28    roadway on which the funds were expended and such roadway is  not  located  on
 29    federal or state-owned land.

Statement of Purpose / Fiscal Impact

                       STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
                                            RS 12606
                                     Grants to highway district the right already given to cities and
      counties to exclude personal service contracts from the
      definition of "expenditure". This legislation will allow highway
      districts the ability to enter into personal service contracts
      based upon competence and qualifications rather than lowest bid.
      A savings to the taxpayers of those citizens who reside within
      highway districts would be realized by streamlining the
                            FISCAL IMPACT
                                     None to the general fund.
