The Commission moved in October 2005 to new office space while their offices on Washington St. in Boise are being renovated. The Commission needed funds for rent, computer networking, additional costs for telephone and internet access, and to hire movers. These costs are on a one-time basis and total $163,800. The Commission was also provided $255,000 of one-time General Funds to develop a modern information system that will be ready when the agency moves back into its renovated building.
