STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
This bill concerns the Department of Commerce and Labor's
Section 1 specifies that the existing advisory council
established by Section 67-4704, Idaho Code, will be known as the
Economic Advisory Council. The amendment also adds one
additional member to the council who will serve in a statewide
capacity and deletes language that is no longer necessary.
Section 2 is a housekeeping amendment. It clarifies that the
definitions in Section 67-4711, Idaho Code, are only applicable
to Sections 67-4710 through 67-4719, Idaho Code. When enacted,
these sections were commonly referred to as the Idaho Travel and
Convention Industry Act. The amendment also defines the term
"act" and changes the name of the Department of Commerce to the
Department of Commerce and Labor.
Section 3 is also a housekeeping amendment. In 1988 the number
of members on the Idaho Travel and Convention Industry Council
was increased from seven members to eight members but the
reference to seven council members in Section 67-4712, Idaho
Code, was never changed. This amendment deletes the reference to
"seven" members and replaces it with "eight" members so that
Sections 67-4712 and 67-4713, Idaho Code, are consistent. The
amendment also deletes obsolete language.
Section 4 is another housekeeping amendment. It replaces an
obsolete reference to the Economic Advisory Council with the
Council's correct name.
Section 5 clarifies that the advisory body appointed by the
Governor pursuant to Section 72-1336, Idaho Code, is the
Workforce Development Council. The amendment also specifies the
Council's duties and responsibilities in relation to the
There is no impact on the State General Fund. Sections 2, 3, 4,
and 5 have no fiscal impact.
Section 1 adds one new member to the Economic Advisory Council.
Members of that Council do not receive compensation or an
honorarium but they are reimbursed for actual and necessary
expenses subject to the Board of Examiner's rules on
reimbursement for travel costs. These costs for one additional
council member will have a negligible impact on the Department's
