 36        section.
 37        (4)  In  addition  to  the information required on gross receipts reports,

  9    rized in subsection (1) of this section, up to five percent (5%) may  be  used
 10    by  the  commission  for  the  promotion and support of amateur boxing in this
 11    state.

 13    receipts report and pay any assessment pursuant to the provisions of this sec-
 14    tion  to  keep and preserve suitable records and documents which may be neces-
 15    sary to determine the amount of assessment due as will substantiate and  prove
 16    the accuracy of such reports. All such records shall be preserved for a period
 17    of  three  (3)  years, unless the commission, in writing, has authorized their
 18    destruction or disposal at an earlier date, and shall be open  to  examination
 19    at any time by the commission or by its authorized agents.

Statement of Purpose / Fiscal Impact

                       STATEMENT OF PURPOSE

                            RS 17638C1                           

     The purpose of this legislation is to provide funding
through the Athletic Commission for promotion of amateur boxing
in Idaho.  The legislation provides for up to 5% of the funds
already being collected by the Athletic Commission to be used for
amateur boxing promotion.  

    Last year, the Athletic Commission generated $56,576 in
revenue from ticket sales.  This would have provided $2,828.00
that could have been used for amateur boxing promotion.

                           FISCAL NOTE

     There is no fiscal impact to the General Fund.
