Rep. Jeff Alltus, R-Hayden, will seek election to a second term.
Alltus represents legislative District 3, which includes Coeur d’Alene, Dalton Gardens and Hayden.
“I want to continue the fight to make state government live within its means,” Alltus said in making his announcement.
Alltus drafted three bills that became law in the recent session. One law gives courts the ability to remove parental rights from rapists. Another protects existing shooting ranges from being shut down because of noise. A third will cut the cost of nursing home insurance in half, he said.
Alltus, 41, is an insurance broker.
