Statement of Purpose / Fiscal Impact

                      STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
                            RS 17728
*The purpose of this legislation is to make changes in terminology of
the representatives serving on the Idaho Food Quality Assurance
Institute. The original legislation called for "commission members" to
be appointed to the institute. Some of the organizations being
represented on the institute do not have commissions. The changes will
allow for broader representation.

                          FISCAL IMPACT
*There is no fiscal impact to General Fund.
