HOUSE BILL NO. 335
BY STATE AFFAIRS COMMITTEE
1 AN ACT
2 RELATING TO THE STATE LIQUOR DISPENSARY; AMENDING SECTION 23-217, IDAHO CODE,
3 TO INCREASE A SURCHARGE.
4 Be It Enacted by the Legislature of the State of Idaho:
5 SECTION 1. 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 two three 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
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.
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.
