House Bill 327 – Office of Administrative Hearings, Appropriations FY24

House Bill 327 – Office of Administrative Hearings, Appropriations FY24

Niklas Kleinworth
March 17, 2023

The Idaho Spending Index serves to provide a fiscally conservative perspective on state budgeting while providing an unbiased measurement of how Idaho lawmakers apply these values to their voting behavior on appropriations bills. Each bill is analyzed within the context of the metrics below. They receive one (+1) point for each metric that is satisfied by freedom-focused policymaking and lose one (-1) point for each instance in which the inverse is true. The sum of these points composes the score for the bill.

Analyst: Niklas Kleinworth

Rating: 0

Bill Description: House Bill 327 appropriates $211,200 and 4.00 full-time positions to the Office of Administrative Hearings for fiscal year 2024.

With the exception of the statewide human resources consolidation initiative, this is a true maintenance of the operations budget, featuring no line items or supplementals. There are also no changes in the number of full-time positions within the agency.

Is the maintenance budget inappropriate for the needs of the state, the size of the agency, or the inflationary environment of the economy? Conversely, is the maintenance budget appropriate given the needs of the state and economic pressures?

ANALYST NOTE: The Office of Administrative Hearings was established in January of 2023. Therefore, there is no annual growth within the agency to measure.
