That Section 23-217, Idaho Code, be, and the same is hereby 6 amended to read as follows: 7 23-217. SURCHARGE ADDED TO PRICE OF GOODS SOLD -- COLLECTION AND REMIS- 8 SION BY SUPERINTENDENT. (1) The superintendent of the state liquor dispensary 9 is hereby authorized and directed to include in the price of goods hereafter 10 sold in the dispensary, and its branches, a surcharge equal to twothree per- 11 cent ( 23%) of the current price per unit computed to the nearest multiple of 12 five cents (5¢). 13 (2) After the price of the surcharge has been included, the superintend- 14 ent of the state liquor dispensary is hereby authorized and directed to allow 15 a discount of five percent (5%) from the price of each order of goods sold to 16 any licensee, as defined in section 23-902(7), Idaho Code. 17 (3) The surcharge imposed pursuant to this section shall be collected and 18 credited monthly to the drug court and family court services fund, as set 19 forth in section 1-1625, Idaho Code.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE RS 15155 The purpose of this bill is to increase funding for the Drug Court and Family Court Services Fund. The surcharge on goods sold in the state liquor dispensary and its branches, which is deposited in the Fund, would be increased from two percent (2%) to three percent (3%). The additional revenue deposited in the Fund as a result of these provisions, based upon reasonable estimates, will allow the Supreme Court to expand programs supported by the Fund by approximately 300 participants. This assumes that the Department of Health and Welfare, through its substance abuse treatment funds and the Access to Recovery Grant, the Department of Correction, and the counties can provide the requisite assessment, treatment and supervision costs. The Fund will provide drug testing, court coordination, evaluation and operating costs. Additional revenue will provide assessment and treatment and other court services required by statute. FISCAL NOTE Based on revenues for FY 2005 to date, the increase in the state liquor dispensary surcharge would generate approximately $900,000 in additional funds for the Drug Court and Family Court Services Fund.
