3rd R Reading
Minors, enjoining harmful material
MINORS – Amends existing law to provide that certain institutions may be enjoined for selling, distributing, or promoting material harmful to minors and to provide for the abrogation of existing ordinances, rules, and regulations.

RS30660 / S1188

Idaho Law restricts distribution, promotion, or dissemination of obscene materials to minors. This Bill amends Idaho Code §§ 18-1520 and 18-1521. It will add certain organizations and establishments that the district court has the jurisdiction with regards to distribution of such materials to minors. It also revises the provisions on the enforcement and banning of ordinances, rules and regulations relating to sale, loan, and distribution of harmful materials to minors.

The passage of this Bill could cause the expenditure of public funds because of possible legal actions required. It is estimated to expose local government and state government to legal cost of $10,000.00 to $100,000.00, as per annum.
