STATE BOARD OF EXAMINERS
MINUTES – Regular Meeting
April 8, 2003
1st Floor E. Conference Room
700 W. State Street, Boise, Idaho


The regular meeting of the State Board of Examiners was called to order at 700 West State Street, Boise, Idaho, at 9:00 a.m. pursuant to §67-2002, Idaho Code and by order of the chair.

The following board members were present, constituting all the members: Governor Dirk Kempthorne, Chairman of the Board; Secretary of State Ben Ysursa; and Attorney General Lawrence Wasden.

State Controller Keith Johnson, secretary to the board, recorded the proceedings of the meeting.


· CONSENT AGENDA
Mr. Johnson introduced the items on the consent agenda. Mr. Wasden moved to approve the consent agenda as recommended in its entirety; Mr. Ysursa seconded the motion. The motion carried by unanimous voice vote.

1. Minutes - Approved

    Approval of official minutes for the meeting of the Board of Examiners on March 11, 2003.

2. Idaho State Police – (1) Approved; (2) Denied
    Subcommittee recommends approval of claim to (1) payoff an accrued, 78 hours of compensatory time for Wayne Sharp, ISP CAD Administrator, and recommends denial of authorization (2) to pre-approve accrual and payment of any additional compensatory time that may be accrued during the calendar year of 2003 by Mr. Sharp.

3. Department of Labor - Approved
    Subcommittee recommends authorization to use up to an additional $50,000 of Penalty and Interest monies in FY03 for Wage and Hour costs pursuant to I.C. 72-1348(b). These additional funds are needed due to the budget holdbacks and the costs incurred in implementing the Farm Labor Contractor Licensing law passed by the legislature last year. Notice sent on March 10, 2003 to DFM and JFAC regarding this request per subcommittee recommendation.

4. Department of Administration - Approved
    Subcommittee recommends authorization to write off $49.34 from the Division of Public Works’ petty cash in rotary account #0803 for the Department of Administration. Approximately ten years ago, an incident was documented at the Division of Public Works where this sum of petty cash was stolen. The incident was reported and investigated, however, the department did not notify the Board of Examiners requesting a write off of the amount. Currently, the Division of Public Works petty cash account is being closed and the department wishes to write off this amount.

5. Division of Veterans Services - Denied
    Subcommittee recommends denial of claim to pay 15.4 hours of compensatory time accrued during the pay period from February 16 through March 1, 2003 for Donita Christensen, Director of Nursing Services, who is FLSA classified as Executive Exempt. Ms. Christensen has been filling in as a registered nurse at the Idaho State Veterans Home in Pocatello because of an acute nursing shortage in order to ensure compliance with federally mandated 24-hour registered nursing coverage. The Division is confident that this request is an anomaly rather than an ongoing accrual of overtime hours.

6. Bureau of Hazardous Materials, Division of Military, Executive Office Of Governor - Approved
    Subcommittee recommends authorization to issue deficiency warrants for reimbursement of response costs incurred during March 2003 pursuant to Idaho Code 39-7110.
