3 IDAHO CODE, BY THE ADDITION OF A NEW SECTION 67-3615, IDAHO CODE, TO

6 Be It Enacted by the Legislature of the State of Idaho:
7 SECTION 1. That Chapter 36, Title 67, Idaho Code, be, and the same is
8 hereby amended by the addition thereto of a NEW SECTION, to be known and des-
9 ignated as Section 67-3615, Idaho Code, and to read as follows:
10 67-3615. LEGISLATIVE AUTHORIZATION REQUIRED FOR APPROPRIATION. Unless the
11 legislature by law authorizes such action annually, neither the governor nor
12 any executive officer shall allow the expenditure of moneys nor shall any
13 agency expend moneys pursuant to an appropriation. To be authorized pursuant
14 to this section, an agency shall present testimony to the germane committee,
15 as determined by the president pro tempore of the senate and the speaker of
16 the house of representatives, of each house regarding the agency's role and
17 mission, goals and objectives of the agency and how well the agency is meeting
18 its goals and objectives. If the germane committee agrees that the agency
19 should be authorized, it shall prepare an enactment reauthorizing the agency.
20 Such enactment must pass both houses and be signed into law or allowed to
21 become law by the governor before an appropriation to the agency may be
22 enacted into law. A bill authorizing an agency shall be separate from any
23 appropriation bill to the agency. As used in this section, "agency" means each
24 state board, institution, commission, department or officer authorized by law
25 to make rules or to determine contested cases, but does not include the legis-
26 lative or judicial branches, executive officers listed in section 1, article
27 IV, of the constitution of the state of Idaho in the exercise of powers
28 derived directly and exclusively from the constitution, the state militia or
29 the state board of correction.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
This proposed legislation amends Chapter 36, Title 67, Idaho Code, by
adding a new section that requires legislative authorization before an
agency may expend an appropriation.
There is no fiscal impact.
