STATEMENT OF PURPOSE RS 14592 The purpose of this legislation is to allow legislative rules review subcommittees established pursuant to section 67-454, Idaho Code, a longer period of time to review proposed state agency administrative rules promulgated during the legislative interim. The proposal would allow the subcommittees to meet ninety days after the receipt of the analysis from the Legislative Services Office. The current law requires a meeting within forty-two days of the receipt of the analysis. The proposal also increases the period of time when members of the subcommittee can request a meeting from fifteen days to forty-five days of the receipt of the analysis from the Legislative Services Office. This legislation will allow more thorough review of rules by legislators prior to requesting a subcommittee meeting and help in scheduling subcommittee meetings. FISCAL IMPACT There will be no fiscal impact as a result of this legislation. Contact Name: Senator Elliot Werk Phone: 332-1000 STATEMENT OF PURPOSE/FISCAL NOTE S 1075
