Statement of Purpose / Fiscal Impact

                       STATEMENT OF PURPOSE

                             RS 16252

This legislation would add three homebuilders or general
contractors to the Idaho Building Code Board.  Further, each
general contractor or homebuilder would represent a region of the
state and must be registered or licensed with the state.  This
legislation also provides that the board shall meet at the call
of the administrator or chairman or at the request of a majority
of the members.

                           FISCAL NOTE

This legislation would result in minimal cost to the Division of
Building Safety.  Current Idaho Code allows members of the Idaho
Building Code Board to receive a stipend of fifty dollars ($50)
per day for each day that the board meets, and members are,
likewise, reimbursed for actual and necessary expenses, subject
to the limits provided in section 67-2008, Idaho Code.
