6. Idaho Commerce and Labor – Approved
Request to use $50,000 Penalty and Interest monies under Idaho Code 72-1348 for use by
the Idaho Rural Partnership (IRP) in Fiscal Year 2008.
Discussion: Mr. Otter asked what the State normally uses the $50,000 for.
Mr. John McAllister answered that the money is used for facilities to purchase and enhance
Commerce and Labor’s 24 local offices.
Mr. Otter asked why the money for facilities is coming out of the Penalty and Interest Fund.
Mr. McAllister said that the account can be used for any lawful purpose with approval from the
Board of Examiners.
Mr. Otter asked where the money was coming from prior to this request.
Mr. McAllister answered that it came from the Workforce Development Training Fund. However, to
avoid any audit difficulties, it would be better to use Penalty and Interest Funds to fund the Idaho Rural
Partnership for one more year. This is a one-time request.
Resolution: Mr. Wasden moved to approve item 6. Mr. Ysursa seconded the motion.
The motion carried on a unanimous voice vote.
9. Legislative Services Office --Approved
Request approval to pay three Legislative Services Information Technology staff for overtime
accrued during relocation of the Legislature and staff to the Capitol Annex.
Discussion: Mr. Wasden asked why this request was in front of the Board.
Mr. Jeff Youtz replied that the statutory framework recognizes unique circumstances where employees
who earn comp time do not have an opportunity to take that time off. It is only intended for non-routine
situations as this.
Mr. Wasden asked how the JFAC would view the request.
Mr. Youtz said that he would not put words in their mouth, but that they have already spoken in terms
of the legislative intent in the statute that it recognizes unique circumstances like this.
Mr. Wasden asked if Mr. Youtz thought the Board might have other agencies with similar requests
asking for comp time payoff.
Mr. Youtz said that it is possible.
Mr. Ysursa noted that the IT employees need to be paid, but maybe there should be a little more time given
to try to burn down some of the time. Since it is on top of the legislative session, the hours probably cannot
be taken off.
Mr. Youtz said another problem is there are more tasks for the IT employees in getting things ready for
the next legislative session. LSO has three or four months to get everything ready. The IT employees
will not have time to take off the comp time while finishing the jobs.
Resolution: Mr. Wasden moved to approve item 9. Mr. Ysursa seconded the motion.
The motion carried on a unanimous voice vote.
