STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
RS28162 / H0036
Consistent with the Governor's Red Tape Reduction Act, this bill seeks to eliminate inactive provisions of law.
ARTIFICIAL INSEMINATION: During the process of reauthorizing Idaho’s administrative rules in 2019,
IDAPA 16.02.08.900 “Request and Consent for Artificial Insemination” and 16.02.08.251(e)(the filing fee)
were not reauthorized. Idaho Code section 39-5403(2-3) outlines the requirements to file copies of the request
and consent for artificial insemination. There have been no filings of these reports to the Department of Health
and Welfare and the Department does not need to have them. Deleting these two sections will remove unneeded
regulation from Idaho’s laws.
FRAUD PREVENTION: Currently, Idaho Vital Records law is overly narrow on how it allows interaction with
law enforcement and other agencies to prevent fraud. IC 39-270 limits the Bureau of Vital Records and Health
Statistics to providing information when the fraud is related to benefit payments and when it is requested by
another agency. The proposed changes will enable the Bureau to proactively work with relevant agencies to
prevent all types of fraud. This legislation would also allow information from certificates to be shared for child
protection as well as child support enforcement.
ARTIFICIAL INSEMINATION: This statute did not require the expenditure of funds and it didn’t result in the
collection of any fees so there won’t be fiscal impact to this legislation.
FRAUD PREVENTION: There is no fiscal impact to this legislation. It will not cost anything to implement
and it will not generate revenue.
