Regan Subbing For Vick: ‘I Worry About My Son’

Brent Regan, a former Coeur d’Alene school board member and vice-chairman of the Idaho Freedom Foundation who’s filling in as a substitute senator for Sen. Steve Vick, R-Dalton Gardens, testified at length against HB 1, responding to numerous questions from lawmakers after his assigned 3 minutes. “A lot of talk has been about protecting children,” he said. “I have a son who’s in boot camp right now,” training to serve with the Marines. He said when his son gets assigned overseas, “I worry about some foreign court ordering some protection order from some claim from some woman somewhere and my son not having the same equal protection that everybody in this room has, and I object to this”/Betsy Russell, Eye on Boise.

Question: Sen. Steve Vick obviously knew that Regan would be adamantly against the child support enforcement bill. Does this mean that Vick has indirectly changed his vote from yes to no on this bill, via proxy?
