be transferred to the State Board of Examiners pursuant to Idaho Code §67-5709A,
effective immediately and that the property be offered for competitive sale, of which said
monies be returned directly to the Department.
b. Request for approval to increase the daily reimbursement rental rate for horses from
$32/day to $50/day, and eliminate any reference to ½-day use or stand by use.
Discussion: Mr. Otter said that for backcountry use, the horses would have to be put on certified weed free hay. He would like to have a monitor to see how much the State is spending a quarter and per year. Maybe the State would be better off if it owned several horses, rather than pay the $50. It would be good to look at the cost vs. the benefit because if the State could contract with weed free hay and have it on hand, then the Board would know for sure if it was a good deal.

Discussion: Mr. Otter asked if any of the outstanding deficiency warrants are in the process of
Mr. Foltman said the important aspect of this is that the claims get presented to the Board
of Examiners on the time schedule that they need to be presented. It does not imply that all of
the efforts have been exhausted in the terms of recovery. Some of the terms in the reports are
still open cases and recovery is still possible in the future. The Board will have the more complete
reporting process with Homeland Security for next month’s meeting. It will be a more comprehensive
report and it will be possible to see both the historic, as well as the current status of the deficiency
Mr. Otter asked if there was some kind of an update on a quarterly basis or an annual basis
to say how much Homeland Security did collect, and why they did not collect a certain amount.
Mr. Foltman answered that the information has been made available. Homeland Security
does have a quarterly report and they are working to expand on it a bit.
Mr. Otter said it would be helpful to be more up-to-date as possible, because the State ought to
be recovering as much of this as we can.
