                       STATEMENT OF PURPOSE

                             RS 17381

This bill will change the compensation for board members on the
State Board of Podiatry to remove them from PERSI.  Their
contributions are very small and it has a detrimental effect on
their tax situation.

                           FISCAL NOTE

There is no fiscal impact on General Fund and very little impact
on dedicated funds.
