7 SECTION 2. That Section 39-5710, Idaho Code, be, and the same is hereby
8 amended to read as follows:
9 39-5710. CONDUCT OF ENFORCEMENT ACTIONS. (1) It is the intent of the leg-
10 islature that law enforcement agencies and the department shall enforce this
11 chapter and rules promulgated pursuant thereto in a manner that can reasonably
12 be expected to significantly reduce the extent to which tobacco products are
13 sold or distributed to minors.
14 (2) Law enforcement agencies may conduct random, unannounced inspections
15 at locations where tobacco products are sold or distributed to ensure compli-
16 ance with this chapter. A copy of all citations issued under this chapter
17 shall be submitted to the department.
18 (3) The department shall conduct at least one (1) random, unannounced
19 inspection per year , with the assistance of a minor, at all locations where
20 tobacco products are sold or distributed at retail to ensure compliance with
21 this chapter. The department shall conduct inspections for minor exempt per-
22 mittees without the assistance of a minor. The department shall conduct
23 inspections for all other permittees with the assistance of a minor. Each year
24 the department shall conduct random unannounced inspections , with the assis-
25 tance of a minor, equal to the number of permittees multiplied by the viola-
26 tion percentage rate reported for the previous year multiplied by a factor of
27 ten (10). Local law enforcement agencies are encouraged to contract with the
28 department to perform these required inspections.
29 (4) Minors may assist with random, unannounced inspections with the writ-
30 ten consent of a parent or legal guardian. When assisting with these inspec-
31 tions, minors shall not provide false identification, nor make any false
32 statement regarding their age.
33 (5) Citizens may file a written complaint of noncompliance of this chap-
34 ter with the department, or with a law enforcement agency. Complaints shall be
35 investigated and the proper enforcement actions taken.
36 (6) Within a reasonable time, not later than two (2) business days after
37 an inspection has occurred, a representative of the business inspected shall
38 be informed in writing of the results of the inspection.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
The proposed change consists of the addition of a "minor exempt"
tobacco retail permit and language to allow the conduct of tobacco
permit inspections without the assistance of a minor for all
businesses holding a "minor exempt" tobacco retail sales permit.
Businesses self-identify for the "minor exempt" tobacco retail
sales permit by certifying that at least 55% of their revenues come
from the sale of alcohol for consumption on site or adult oriented
entertainment. Businesses provided a "minor exempt" tobacco retail
sales permit are routinely inspected by an adult inspector for all
random and unannounced inspections during the year and are subject
to the same level of investigation as all other permit holders for
