STATEMENT OF PURPOSE RS 13712 The purpose of this bill is to make various codifier corrections to the Idaho Code. In the course of a legislative session, multiple amendments to a single code section, chapter or title are frequently passed. Occasionally, these multiple amendments result in conflicting numbering of sections or subsections. In addition, in some instances, separate sections of the code contain citations to sections or subsections which contain conflicting numbering due to multiple amendments. Conflicting citation numbering is identified at the time session laws for any given year are incorporated into the existing code. Sections or subsections containing conflicting numbering are redesignated by the codifier. Redesignated code citations are set forth in brackets following citations as set forth in session laws. The bracketed citation remains in the code until the affected section undergoes a future amendment and then, at that time, a correction to the citation number is made. This method of indicating codifier corrections is often confusing to the reader. Rather than waiting for future amendment to the various affected sections, this bill compiles those code sections affected in the 2003 legislative session that contain conflicting numbering so that the designations may be promptly corrected. FISCAL IMPACT There is no fiscal impact as a result of this bill. Contact Name: Mike Nugent, Legislative Services Offices Phone: 208/334-2475 STATEMENT OF PURPOSE/FISCAL NOTE H 629
