Statesman: Yes On 4 Amendments

Idaho’s publicly owned airports, community hospitals and city-run electric utilities need the flexibility to serve their customers and adapt to fluid markets. On Tuesday, voters should grant that flexibility. They should vote yes on three complicated but important constitutional amendments to allow these public entities to finance projects and purchases without voter approval. The amendments appear a la carte on the ballot: House Joint Resolution 4 covers hospitals’ ability to go into debt on equipment or property; HJR 5 covers airport projects, such as runways, hangars or terminals; HJR 7 would allow utilities to complete capital projects or sign long-term contracts to purchase power/Kevin Richert, Idaho Statesman.

Question: How do you plan to vote on the 4 constitutional amendments on the general election ballot?
