 Fifty-seventh Legislature                 First Regular Session - 2003
                                       IN THE SENATE
                            SENATE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION NO. 114
                                 BY STATE AFFAIRS COMMITTEE
  1                               A CONCURRENT RESOLUTION
  5    Be It Resolved by the Legislature of the State of Idaho:
  6        WHEREAS, the economic well-being of the state of Idaho and its communities
  7    depends on the belief of its citizens  that  their  state  and  community  are
  8    places  where  families  can live in safety and security, where quality health
  9    care is readily available, where the educational system  meets  the  needs  of
 10    learners  of  all ages, where government services are provided in an efficient
 11    and effective manner, where opportunities for business and  commercial  growth
 12    are  encouraged and supported and where the state's natural heritage and qual-
 13    ity of life are protected and enjoyed; and
 14        WHEREAS, rapid technological advances have significantly  altered  society
 15    and  have  dramatically  changed business practices, methods of communication,
 16    and lifestyles in just the last decade; and
 17        WHEREAS, as technology continues to affect Idaho  businesses'  ability  to
 18    successfully  compete  with  global  competitors,  governments  are  naturally
 19    affected  and  must  keep  up with the so-called "New Economy" revolution that
 20    will notably transform the lives of citizens and the nature of commerce; and
 21        WHEREAS, citizens of the state of Idaho, both urban and rural, local  gov-
 22    ernments, and state government can benefit through expansion of existing busi-
 23    nesses,  growth of new businesses, and location of businesses coming to Idaho;
 24    and
 25        WHEREAS, the ability of Idaho  communities  to  successfully  compete  for
 26    business relocation and expansion is often largely dependent on the ability to
 27    offer appropriate, competitive incentives; and
 28        WHEREAS,  it is the intent of the Legislature to assist the communities of
 29    this state in meeting the economic challenges that have arisen and  will  con-
 30    tinue  to arise as new technologies continue to severely impact the ability to
 31    compete in a global marketplace; and
 32        WHEREAS, there is a need to review and examine policies and make  specific
 33    legislative proposals to ensure that Idaho companies will continue to grow and
 34    prosper  while providing economic benefits to Idaho's citizens, government and
 35    businesses.
 36        NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED by the members of the First Regular Session
 37    of the Fifty-seventh Idaho Legislature, the Senate and the House of  Represen-
 38    tatives  concurring  therein,  that  the  Legislative Council is authorized to
 39    appoint a committee to undertake and complete a study of economic  development
 40    incentives.  The Legislative Council shall determine the number of legislators
 41    and membership from each house appointed to the committee and shall  authorize
 42    the  committee  to  receive  input,  advice and assistance from interested and
 43    affected parties who are not members of the legislature.
 44        BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that nonlegislative members of the committee may be
  1    appointed by the cochairs of the committee who are appointed by  the  Legisla-
  2    tive  Council.  Nonlegislative  members of the advisory committee shall not be
  3    reimbursed from legislative funds for per diem, mileage or other expenses  and
  4    shall  not have voting privileges regarding the committee's recommendations or
  5    proposed legislation.
  6        BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the committee shall make a progress report  to
  7    the  Second  Regular  Session of the Fifty-seventh Idaho Legislature and shall
  8    report its findings, recommendations and proposed legislation, if any, to  the
  9    First Regular Session of the Fifty-eighth Idaho Legislature.

Statement of Purpose / Fiscal Impact

                      STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
                            RS 13195
    This concurrent resolution would allow for the appointment 
    of a committee to study Idaho incentives for economic
    development, identify those most commonly offered by Idaho
    competitors, recommend potential incentives Idaho could offer,
    and identify the return on investment (ROI) by offering these
                         FISCAL IMPACT
    If this resolution is adopted by the Legislature and the 
    committee is appointed by Legislative Council, any 
    necessary legislator travel and per diem expense would be 
    paid from the existing legislative appropriation to the 
    Senate and the House of Representatives.  Funding for staff 
    support and expenses would be provided from the existing 
    appropriation to the Legislative Council for the 
    Legislative Services Office.  There would be no additional 
    impact upon the state general fund as a result of this 
    resolution.  The total cost should not exceed $5,000.
