Health boards, duties
HEALTH DISTRICTS – Amends existing law to revise the powers and duties of the district boards of health.

RS31255 / H0525

This legislation modifies Section 39-414, Idaho Code, to limit the powers and duties of the district boards of health. It narrows their scope to administer and enforce only necessary and reasonable health laws and regulations, eliminating the broader mandate to do "all things" for the preservation and protection of public health. This change reinforces the focused use of authority and resources to ensure the boards operate within a specified framework.

This legislation causes no additional expenditures of funds at the state or local level of government, nor does it cause an increase or decrease to revenue for state or local government therefore the legislation has no fiscal impact.
