Hill Wants To Raise Faith In Gummint

Sen. Brent Hill of Rexburg, the Republican majority’s new leader in the Idaho Senate, told the Rexburg Standard Journal, “If I had one goal, it would be to create a better level of trust between the citizens and government as a whole. Part of the way we do that is to be honest, up front and communicate so people know what’s going on in government.” Hill, 61, was chosen last Wednesday by the state Senate’s 28 GOP members to serve as their new president pro tempore. He will replace Sen. Bob Geddes, R-Soda Springs, who held the post longer than any state lawmaker before stepping down this year/Associated Press. More here.

Question: What would the Idaho Legislature have to do to restore your faith in state government?
