STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
This legislation amends two sections of Idaho Code, 23-904(10) and
Idaho Code 23-904(10) requires a one time fee of $25,000 and an
annual renewal fee of $3,500 for each license issued to owners,
operators and lessees of lodging, beverage and dining facilities
within the contiguous boundaries of a year-round resort as defined
Idaho code 23-957 provides additional licenses to lodging, dining
and beverage facilities located within the contiguous boundaries of
a year-round resort as defined in Idaho Code 23-957. The 2006
Legislature enacted Idaho Code 23-957 to provide three liquor
licenses for lodging, beverage and dining facilities located within
the contiguous boundaries of a year-round resort.
The purpose of this legislation is to provide nine additional
licenses for lodging, beverage and dining facilities located within
the contiguous boundaries of a year-round resort as set forth in
Idaho Code 23-957; and provides a one time fee of $25,000 per
license and an annual renewal fee of $3,500 per license.
These licenses are non-transferable and cannot be sold and
therefore have no value to anyone other than the license holder.
