Raybould: ‘We’ve got to be careful’

Rep. Dell Raybould, R-Rexburg, said in his view, a legislator can’t have a conflict of interest on a bill if it affects anyone other than the legislator himself. “I think we have to be careful here in terms of singling out a particular piece of legislation that Rep. Hart may be involved with, unless it pertains to him only,” Raybould declared. “If it pertains to anyone else or any class of people that would benefit in a like manner of that which a member voting it or sponsoring it would achieve, I think we’ve got to be careful or we’re not going to be able to have anyone involved in our legislative capacity except people who don’t have family and don’t have jobs.” His comment drew an appreciative mutter from Hart supporters in the audience.
