    Discussion: Mr. Olsen asked Ms. Pond if the agency needed any assistance recovering the amounts

    on a unanimous voice vote.

    Discussion: Mr. Olsen commented that it is overtime reimbursed by the federal government, and iIt is a win-win
    situation for the State.

    Ms. Pond noted that the request was put forward because of the wildfires. Many people are deployed on fires
    and it is hard to recover comp time because of the federal government.

    Discussion: Mr. Hodges commented that in the future this will be added to the Department of Correction’s budget, and then have these amounts come before the Board under their budget authority instead of the Board of Examiners.

    Mr. Olsen said that he looked at the statute for this request and it does provide that these kinds of requests are to come before the Board of Examiners, but then that Board, at the next legislative session, gets to make a request from the legislature for payment.

    Mr. Hodges noted that it must be entered into the budget process to get the appropriation, so it is good timing the request came now instead of in December.

    Resolution: Mr. Olsen moved to approve item 5. a. Mr. Hammon seconded the motion. The motion carried on a unanimous voice vote.

    b. Request for approval pursuant to Idaho Code §18-2507 for a bill for the closed cases handled by
