Bill Description: House Bill 60 creates a new state snowmobile avalanche fund and a state snowmobile avalanche fund committee. 

Rating: -2

Does it create, expand, or enlarge any agency, board, program, function, or activity of government? Conversely, does it eliminate or curtail the size or scope of government?

House Bill 60 creates Section 67-7107A, Idaho Code, which establishes a new state snowmobile avalanche fund and a five-member state snowmobile avalanche fund committee to direct distributions from the fund. 

New government funds and committees represent an increase in the size and scope of government.

Does it directly or indirectly create or increase any taxes, fees, or other assessments? Conversely, does it eliminate or reduce any taxes, fees, or other assessments?

House Bill 60 directs that $1.00 from each "snowmobile certificate of number fee," "rental certificate of number fee," and "nonresident snowmobile user certificate issued by vendors" be deposited in the state snowmobile avalanche fund. 

While this bill does not directly increase fees, it does so indirectly by redirecting part of the current fee to a new fund. (The predictable direct fee increase is contained in House Bill 61, and the bill increases them by far more than $1.00 per number fee.)
