RS29907 / S1044
The purpose of this legislation is to make codifier and technical corrections to the Idaho Code. During the
course of a session, the same code sections and chapters might be amended multiple times in different bills.
These amendments cannot always be cleanly reconciled and incorporated into the Idaho Code. Rather, the
changes can result in inconsistent numbering of statutes, irregular grammar, and “surplus verbiage” — for
example, a sentence fragment that was not itself deleted in any bill but was associated with deleted language.
In the annual codifier bill, the Legislative Services Office corrects any such irregularities and also makes other
technical corrections to the Idaho Code, such as revising grammar and punctuation, correcting inaccurate code
references, and updating archaic language. Codifier and technical corrections are not substantive in nature
and will not change the meaning or effect of any section or chapter being amended. This is merely “cleanup”
legislation, intended to provide clarity to readers of the Idaho Code.
This legislation has no fiscal impact beyond costs necessary to compile and print the bill. These are fixed costs
covered in LSO’s budget.
