Yesterday I introduced 5 bills, one to repeal some unused criminal laws and four to reduce some minor offenses from misdemeanors to infractions. This morning I presented HCR3 in the House Education Committee to create a legislative study group on the collection and security of student data. We had some great support from concerned parents. The resolution passed the committee and is moving to the House floor. Finally, this afternoon I introduced the Idaho Direct Medical Care Act with Senator Thayn to restore direct relationships between patients and medical providers and to reduce costs and improve service. The bill was approved for printing by the Senate Commerce Committee.

I introduced two bills this week. One would set procedures for selecting delegates and defining their scope of authorization if an Article V convention is ever convened. It does not, however, call for a convention. The other would establish a legislative task force to study ways to minimize and better secure student data collection.

On May 7, 1945 my father Mike left his B-24 crewmates at Giullia Field, Italy after having completed his 35 missions. He was still a 19 year old teenager by age, but not by experience. The next day the war in Europe ended. Many others were not so lucky to make it home. The freedom they and others purchased for us is precious. Let us be vigilent to preserve it from government which would substitute compulsion for freedom.

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.….html
