STATEMENT OF PURPOSE RS 14505 This bill concerns the Department of Commerce and Labor's Advisory Councils. 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 Department. FISCAL IMPACT 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 budget.
