House Bill 674 – Charter School Commission, Appropriations FY25

House Bill 674 – Charter School Commission, Appropriations FY25

Niklas Kleinworth
February 29, 2024

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.

Bill Description: House Bill 674 appropriates $724,900 and 5.00 full-time positions to the Charter School Commission for fiscal year 2025.

With the exception of some adjustments to the statewide change in employee compensation, this budget confirms the maintenance budget funding proposed in pending legislation, House Bill 459.

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?

The Commission was made a separate entity from the Department of Education in the 2022 fiscal year. This means there were one-time startup costs associated with establishing the Commission in that fiscal year, making a three year comparison impracticable.
