Lt. Gov. Little urges support for HJR 5

Idaho Lt. Gov. Brad Little has come out in favor of HJR 5, the constitutional amendment on the November ballot that Gov. Butch Otter is opposing. “Unfortunately, we live in an age of bureaucratic expansionism on the federal level that often goes unchecked,” Little wrote in a statement today. “The good news is that Idaho has strong checks in place to limit and inhibit overregulation we see coming out of D.C. I support HJR 5 because it helps ensure this will always be the case in Idaho.” You can read his full statement here.

Little joins Idaho GOP Sen. Jim Risch and state House and Senate GOP legislative leaders in coming out publicly in support of HJR 5. Among those who have come out publicly against it are Otter and Idaho Attorney General Lawrence Wasden, also a Republican.
