STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
RS28305 / H0041
This bill prevents state agencies and officials from forcing certain non-profit groups to disclose more
information than is required in Idaho code. It prohibits agencies and public officials from using the power of
the state to compel private foundations and charitable trusts to release additional, private information or to
complete extra filings not already required by law. It does not apply to other nonprofits, like charter schools
and hospitals, that are regulated under different sections of code.
However, the legislature is still free to create new disclosure or filing requirements at any time. The bill simply
prohibits enforcement of extraneous requirements or rules not already in law.
This bill has no affect on the general fund and no other economic impact.
Representative Kevin Andrus
