14 appointed, shall hold office for the remainder of the predecessor's term.
15 (2) The committee shall be composed of seven (7) producers engaged in
16 producing seed crops and two (2) seed buyers or seed buyer representatives.

18 appointments shall be three (3) producers and one (1) seed buyer for one (1)
19 year terms, two (2) producers for two (2) year terms, and two (2) producers

STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
Amend Title 22, Chapter 51, Idaho Code, to compensate members of
the Seed Indemnity Fund Advisory Committee in accordance with
section 59-509(o), Idaho Code, rather than section 59-509(i), Idaho
Code. The advisory committee member's honorarium will no longer be
considered salary as defined in section 59-1302(31), Idaho Code.
On October 10, 2003, the Seed Indemnity Fund Advisory Committee
voted unanimously to be compensated in accordance with section 59-
509(o), Idaho Code, rather than section 59-509(i), Idaho Code.
There will be no fiscal impact to the general fund.
