Idaho Legislature

My Thoughts: HB 437

Here is one of the most important bills to be voted on this session. This bill would not only protect Idaho citizens from the threat of constitutional violations, but it would also demonstrate to the federal government that we are not going to put up with them attempting to run …

Idaho Legislature

My Thoughts: HB 476

I agree with the idea laid out in this bill. If a private landowner wishes to open up his land to the public then they should be able to. The idea of not being held responsible for what happens on his land is to be determined. If he/she is receiving …

My Thoughts: HB 466

Family businesses are complicated machines, and yet they are the life force of the American dream. The government should not be in the middle of regulating professional relationships between family members. Neither should they be in the business of making things more complicated for family owned and operated businesses.

My Thoughts: HB 465

Here is another Medicaid expansion plan. This time for dental. As we can see here they are throwing as many expansion plans as possible to see what sticks. Odds are on their side to pass one of these bills which will require the government to take more money from the …

My Thoughts: HB 451

While I believe in reducing taxes for everyone, this bill seeks to benefit private organizations. This bill smells of lobbyists. Tax breaks to those who are donating to charitable organizations are one thing, but those for people who are donating to private organizations? I don’t think so.

Idaho Legislature

My Thoughts: HB 449

The elimination of taxes is always a benefit. However, it is certainly unnecessary for the government to encroach on the sale of precious metals. Once again this is the government expecting a piece of our personal property for not doing anything. Keep government out of our pockets!

Idaho Legislature

My Thoughts: HB 447

Recently, our legislators voted to decrease government accountability in civil asset forfeitures. Now it is time to reverse that. Government should be held accountable for stealing from citizens simply out of spite or extortion. This bill would require that the government actually have to prove that the money was used …
