Session contribution reporting bill introduced

The House Ways & Means Committee has voted unanimously, with no discussion, to introduce legislation from Rep. Lynn Luker, R-Boise, requiring reporting within 48 hours of campaign contributions received during a convened legislative session. Idaho now has no restrictions or special reporting requirements for such contributions. “There was a little discussion going on at the beginning of the session, so I thought we might as well plug that hole,” Luker said. “I think it’s a pretty rare event. … There was some concern expressed, so I figured I might as well take care of it.”

Ways & Means also unanimously introduced a constitutional amendment bill proposed by Rep. Fred Wood, R-Burley, regarding limits on municipal debt; and another measure from Wood on behalf of the Idaho Hospital Association to regulate “telepharmacy,” when hospitals that are part of multistate systems cross jurisdictional lines in their use of pharmacists.
