SENATE BILL NO. 1076
BY HEALTH AND WELFARE COMMITTEE
1 AN ACT
2 RELATING TO POISON CONTROL; REPEALING SECTIONS 56-1036, 56-1037, 56-1038,
3 56-1039 AND 56-1040, IDAHO CODE, RELATING TO THE PURPOSE, ESTABLISHMENT,
4 OPERATION, AUTHORITY AND DUTIES OF A STATEWIDE POISON CONTROL CENTER.
5 Be It Enacted by the Legislature of the State of Idaho:
6 SECTION 1. That Sections 56-1036, 56-1037, 56-1038, 56-1039 and 56-1040,
7 Idaho Code, be, and the same are hereby repealed.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
To repeal the Poison Control Act (Idaho Code §56-1036 through
§56-1040). This law states that the Department of Health and
Welfare shall “establish and support…a statewide poison control
center”. This law was passed in 1996; however no appropriation
accompanied the legislation. Since 1996, Idaho’s poison control
center has been funded with federal Temporary Assistance to
Needy Families (TANF) funds which are no longer available.
Without the appropriation of state general funds to replace the
federal dollars, there will be insufficient funds to maintain
the poison control center.
Repealing this law will not impact state general funds as no
General Funds currently support the poison control center.
