IFF: Legislature Has More Work To Do

With any luck, the Legislature will go home within a week. But will lawmakers take some positive actions in their remaining days in Boise to promote free markets and limited government? It might be surprising, but there are, in fact, several good pieces of legislation pending before lawmakers. Here’s a short wish list of actions lawmakers should take before adjourning: 

  • Pass the wind generation moratorium.
  • Cut taxes and limit future tax and spending increases.
  • Continue urban renewal reform.
  • Three bills that have passed the House and are awaiting Senate action would help with health insurance.
  • A House-approved bill that would help students use online learning to advance through their school work sooner is on the Senate’s calendar.

Question: Do you support this agenda of Wayne Hoffman and the Idaho Freedom Foundation?
