|Statement of Purpose|
The Department of Agriculture administers a program in the ten
northern counties to coordinate agricultural field burning with
atmospheric conditions to minimize the impact of field burning on
air quality. This legislation provides additional FY 2005 spending
authority to the Department of Agriculture from the Agricultural Smoke
Management Fund in the amount of $60,000. This bill acts as a trailer
bill to H776 which increased the fees paid by growers from $1 to $2 per
acre of cropland to be burned in the ten northern counties.
Provides spending authority in the amount of $35,000 in personnel
costs for temporary seasonal employees and $25,000 in operating
expenditures for meteorological, communications, and travel costs.
The funding source is the dedicated Agricultural Smoke Management Fund
created in section 22-4804, Idaho Code.
