2024 Legislative Town Hall TOMORROW 2/24 @ 10am


title

Hello friends!

 

It has been a hot second since I posted and I am sorry for not giving updates. My focus has been entirely on the state legislature because it is only in session between January and March every year. This session has become very important because we have never had as many freedom fighting legislators sitting in the Idaho House and Senate and they have been working overtime to fight for you: the people that put them into office.

 

Tomorrow is the Legislative Town Hall and most of our 12 state legislators will be there. I hope to see you there!


Legislator Town Hall

Below I have listed out every legislator that represents Kootenai County citizens and I have made a cursory list about what bills each legislator has sponsored or co-sponsored this session. Please do not assume that if a particular legislator has not sponsored a lot of bills means they have not done much this session. Quite the opposite, actually. Our legislators are some of the most well-educated men and women in the legislature, and they advise others on bills and work behind the scenes to build relationships to try and ensure the good bills will pass.

 

Also, all of these legislators are up for reelection in May so this town hall is your time to speak with them, hear what they have to say, and make up your mind about if you would like them to continue in the legislature. Rumor has it that some of our old establishment legislators, whom we had kicked out of office due to their terrible voting records, have decided to run against our sitting representatives to try regaining a RINO foothold in the legislature. Be prepared for the narrative-pushing CDA Trash Press articles.

 

A couple things to note before the list:

  1. The Joint Finance Appropriations Committee (JFAC) has been working around the clock all year long to try and find a way to make the state budgets more transparent. This year they decided to pass budgets in two rounds: the first round would be the base budget for each state agency that was no more or no less than that agency received last year. It was what that agency “needed” to keep the lights on essentially. The second round was to look at all the budget line items that those agencies want more money for items above and beyond their base budget. Right now, JFAC is in the middle of working through the second round of budget items but it has not been easy to get the first round of budgets passed. The establishment RINOs and Democrats were very upset by this new, transparent way and tried to take over the budget bills in what we lovingly call the JFAC Hijack.

    1. Because of the JFAC Hijack shenanigans, the establishment RINOs realized they didn’t have as many friends in the legislature as they thought they did. This attempted budget coup resulted in a lot of moderate Republicans siding with the Conservatives, and they ousted Representative Megan Blanksma as House Majority Leader after learning she was leading the charge in the Hijack hijinks. Representative Jason Monks was voted in as the new House Majority Leader.

  2. Now that the establishment RINOs figured out they were no longer in charge, the transparent budget packages have been rolling seamlessly through the legislative system, with the first of the 10 packages rumored to have been signed into law by Governor Little TODAY, Friday, February 23.

Hopefully this is the start of a change for the good in the state of Idaho, God knows the people deserve it.

 

Onto our county legislators, who I believe are THE best legislators in the entire state. Below are the districts they represent and the bills that have their name as a Sponsor or Co-Sponsor but please give me grace, I did a cursory glance at all the bills and may have accidentally left off one.
