publicly owned airports, community hospitals and city-run electric
utilities need the flexibility to serve their customers and adapt to
fluid markets. On Tuesday, voters should grant that flexibility.
They should vote yes on three complicated but important constitutional
amendments to allow these public entities to finance projects and
purchases without voter approval. The amendments appear a la carte
on the ballot: House Joint Resolution 4 covers hospitals’ ability to go
into debt on equipment or property; HJR 5 covers airport projects, such
as runways, hangars or terminals; HJR 7 would allow utilities to
complete capital projects or sign long-term contracts to purchase power/Kevin Richert, Idaho Statesman. More here.
Question: How do you plan to vote on the 4 constitutional amendments on the general election ballot?
