Selective Reporting by Press on Religious Freedom Bill -

Idaho Rep. Lynn Luker introduced HB 426 to protect persons holding occupational licenses in the exercise of their religious freedom. With government mandates of all types forcing religiously faithful people to violate the tenants of their faith, including the forced subsidizing of contraceptives and termination of life, interference with faith based counseling, and compelled participation in same gender weddings, concern about refusing such mandates prompted the bill to protect the right to earn a living while staying true to a person’s faith. When asked if there was a current issue in Idaho with occupational licenses, Luker responded there were none presently to his knowledge, but the issue was coming, and is appearing in other place. With reference to the question on protecting licenses, Luker commented that the bill could be called pre-emptive. In reporting the print hearing, the press morphed that statement into”pre-emptive strike” and focused the report on gays and lesbians, excluding any comment about contraceptives, abortion, and biases against faith based counseling. Thus, a bill to protect the revocation of professional licenses based upon a variety of mandates facing the faithful became a pre-emptive strike against gays and lesbians. The press can and should do better than this. Let’s report all of the news, not selectively report to sensationalize it. www.idahostatesman.com/2014/01/28/2995918/rep-pre-….html

I enjoyed lunch today with FFA students from Cambridge and Nampa. The convention room at the Riverside was filled with blue jackets from all over the state. I was impressed with their clean cut, smiling, happy faces, and the ambitious projects they are pursuing. It was fun to reminisce about my own 4H sheep and bee raising experiences. I was greatly encouraged about our future by being in the presence of these responsible and motivated young women and men of the FFA.

Representative Lynn Luker Requests Idaho Attorney General To Investigate Security Assurances Given By Idaho Health Insurance Exchange

Late Friday afternoon, December 20, 2013, Idaho State Representative Lynn Luker, (R-Boise) filed a request with Idaho Attorney General Lawerence Wasden to investigate whether the Idaho Health Insuance Exchange, Your Health Idaho, has adequately complied with Idaho law requiring that information collected through the exchange is and will be secure. Exchange Chairman Stephen Weeg issued letters to Governor Butch Otter and Insurance Director Bill Deal on September 27, 2013 certifying that the exchange was secure prior to the exchange opening to accept applications on October 1, 2013. The certification appears to have been issued based upon federal assurances and not from an independent investigation. Since then, multiple reports in the media and in congressional hearings reveal significant concern with and security risks in the federal portal, www.healthcare.gov, which the Idaho exchange currently uses to process insurance applications. The full text of Representative Luker’s request and Chairman Weeg’s certification is attached to this post. chumly.com/attachment/15231654
