STATEMENT OF PURPOSE RS 14486 In the 2004 session, SB 1323 became law and dealt with elimination of the requirement for a local district to permit a school bus driver. A section of Idaho code, 33-1508, did not get changed at that time. This bill makes that correction and again puts Idaho code, in this area, in concurrence.
