STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
RS27739 / H0522
This legislation requires that vendor contracts for digital and online library resources for K-12 students contain
a provision verifying that the resource will not contain material deemed harmful to minors as defined in Idaho
code and providing that contracts may be suspended or terminated for violation of that provision. It also requires
that the Idaho Commission for Libraries submit an annual report to the governor and the legislature outlining
issues with vendor compliance.
This will have no fiscal impact because it adds a contractual guarantee to an existing process and the Idaho
Commission for Libraries already prepares an annual report within which any issues may be noted.
