STATE OF IDAHO
EXECUTIVE ORDER NO. 2007-07
Prohibiting THE USE OF STATE FUNDS FOR MEMBERSHIP IN PROFESSIONAL ASSOCIATIONS BY STATE EMPLOYEES
WHEREAS, there is need for a uniform state policy regarding the payment of professional dues, fees and memberships for state employees. I find it is prudent to continue the policy for all state employees in the Executive Department that was first promulgated in Executive Order No. 81-11.
NOW, THEREFORE, I, C.L. “BUTCH” OTTER, Governor of the State of Idaho, by the authority vested in me under the Constitution and laws of the State of Idaho, do hereby order as follows:
No state money shall be used to pay for any kind of professional, occupational, or trade license, certificate, permit, or occupational registration for any state employee or officer; nor shall any state monies be used to pay for any kind of dues to any professional, occupational, or trade association in which membership is restricted to persons who are licensed, certified, or registered under Idaho law. This policy does not preclude the state or state departments from paying dues or license fees to organizations relating to their responsibilities in state government, or where such dues or license are part of a requirement of employment.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand and caused to be affixed the Great Seal of the State of Idaho in Boise on this 18th day of July in the year of our Lord two thousand and seven, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred thirty-second and of the Statehood of Idaho the one hundred eighteenth.
C.L. "BUTCH" OTTER
SECRETARY OF STATE
