Don Pischner will run for a third term in the Idaho House of Representatives.
The District 4 Republican cites his efforts to restore state funding for children’s health insurance and to keep the state paying local jails when they house state prisoners as important contributions to North Idaho’s well-being during the last session.
Pischner also is the only North Idaho legislator to serve on the Joint Finance Appropriations Committee. That’s important because the committee “has supported the Silver Valley cleanup, restoration and rehabilitation,” he said.
Pischner’s other committee posts include the House Transportation and Defense Committee.
A lifelong resident of Coeur d’Alene, Pischner oversees construction and environmental enhancement projects for Idaho Forest Industries. He was first elected in 1994.
Property tax relief, improving U.S. Highway 95 and state budget issues are among his priorities. “I’ve been tremendously honored to have served this area in the legislature and I’m asking the voters to send me back for the 1999 session,” Pischner said. , DataTimes
