Hart, Vito Oppose Canada Trade Idea

Ten House Republicans have voted against a non-binding memorial backing improved cooperation with Canada on trade and security, but HJM 13 passed the House, 56-10, and now moves to the Senate.  The memorial, co-sponsored by Reps. George Eskridge, R-Dover, and Max Black, R-Boise, and Sen. Curt McKenzie, R-Nampa, recognizes that the U.S. and Canada are each other's largest single export market, and calls for Congress and the federal administration to work together to carry out the “Beyond the Border Action Plan” released in December 2011, pursuant to an initiative announced a year earlier by the president of the United States and the prime minister of Canada/Betsy Russell, Eye On Boise. More here.

Question: Hart & Barbieri can waste the Legislature's time with “sound money” and nullification bills; yet, they oppose a memorial supporting trade with Canada? Seriously?
