STATEMENT OF PURPOSE RS 13640 The purpose of this legislation is to amend Idaho Code 33-1707 to increase the distribution of funds to public schools for their driver education programs from $110 to $125 per student enrolled in the course. Driver licensing fees in the Department of Transportation generate the funds. The reimbursement has not increased since 1995. The increase helps offset the average fifty-nine percent (59%) overall increase for the cost of vehicle fuel, oil, maintenance and insurance, and increased costs for training materials, equipment and teacher salaries. This reimbursement increase to schools may reduce the growth of student fees paid by families for driver education, which have increased one hundred forty-five percent (145%) since 1995. FISCAL IMPACT None. Current driver license fees generate enough revenue to cover this reimbursement increase.
