Today, I had the privilege of visiting Mrs. Pyper’s 6th grade class at Discovery Elementary School today with State Representative  Jeff Thompson.

We had an amazing discussion on the privilege of voting in this great nation and being informed about issues. They asked about 45 great questions. Most importantly Rep. Thompson challenged them to “Dream Big”!


I am greatful for Rep. Thompson taking time out of his busy reelection campaign to answer these students questions about their government.

Each student was handed a United States Constitution. The future looks bright in Idaho.

Good luck Rep. Thompson on your election tonight.

Lt. Governor encourages vote YES on HJR5


November 2, 2016 (208) 334-2200

Lieutenant Governor Little Encourages Idahoans to Vote Yes on HJR 5

“Idaho is an example to other states and the federal government on how government should have a process that checks excessive regulation and ensures only the lightest possible hand of government in our state.

This important check is the Idaho Administrative Procedure Act. On November 8, Idaho voters will have the opportunity to protect this critical tool by securing it within Idaho’s Constitution.

I urge my fellow citizens to vote yes for HJR 5. Let me explain why.

I looked at HJR 5 through the perspective of a citizen, not a politician, as I do all government action. As a citizen, I want easily accessible legislators who respect limited government. Our legislators are ultimately accountable for the consequences— intended or unintended— of the laws they enact. We citizens exercise accountability over their efforts at the ballot box.

Two principles of government that endure from our country’s founding are constitutionalism, and checks and balances. Both help to limit the reach of government over citizens. While the executive branch enforces our laws by creating administrative rules and regulations, I am thankful our elected legislators can review these rules and ensure they comply with the intent of the law.

Unfortunately, we live in an age of bureaucratic expansionism on the federal level that often goes unchecked. The good news is that Idaho has strong checks in place to limit and inhibit overregulation we see coming out of D.C. I support HJR 5 because it helps ensure this will always be the case in Idaho.

Idaho’s citizens have unrivaled access to our government officials, which is one great aspect of Idaho. I will always opt for increased citizen engagement in the decisions of government.

The Idaho Administrative Procedure Act increases citizen participation in our checks and balances process. Why not also ensure this important process is protected in our state’s Constitution?

HJR 5 is the constitutional check on regulatory and government expansion, so join me in voting Yes for HJR 5.”

Bonneville County Republicans Support HJR5


Press Release                                                                                                       For Immediate Release
October 26, 2016                                   Contact: Adam Frugoli                                                               

IDAHO FALLS, IDAHO – BCRCC GOP Chairman Mark Fuller released the following statement supporting HJR5.

Since July the Bonneville County Republican Party have been actively researching House Joint Resolution 5.

Our Legislative Issues and Action Committee, chaired by 3rd Vice Chairman Adam Frugoli has listened to our local Bonneville County Delegation as well as written and oral comments from both Republican and Democrat elected officials from all branches of Idaho’s government. It became very clear that a majority of officials supported from both Republican and Democrats.  Only 3 members of the House voted against it and one from the Senate.

HJR5 ensures that the citizens of Idaho can continue hold unelected bureaucrats accountable for the regulations they seek to enact.

In 2014 a similar ballot measure brought before the voters was supported by a majority of Idaho voters, however was short of a super majority by about 4,000 votes. In speaking with voters many had questions about the measure in 2014.

History is usually a good indication of the future:

In 1989 Idaho’s Attorney General sued the Idaho Legislature, provoked by the Legislature striking a rule that was over reaching. In 1990 the Idaho Supreme Count issued a 3-2 decision that the Legislature did have the authority to stop abusive administrative rules that where not congruent with the intent of law. The lawsuit wasted a significant amount of tax payer financial resources.

Since 1990, hundreds of over reaching government rules have been stopped, protecting Idaho citizen freedoms from runaway government.

By a unanimous vote elected Bonneville County Republican Prescient Committee Officers voted to support HJR5. We have dedicated financial and human resources for this important issue facing Idahoans.

As Republicans, we feel this accountability has been critical to ensuring the freedoms and values that Idahoans enjoy every day. That freedom needs to be protected in our State Constitution for future generations of Idahoans.

I encourage all of Idaho County Republican Central Committees, along with Democrat County Central Committees across to support HJR5. We are grateful for the example of our Republicans and Democrat lawmakers that worked together to support this important measure.
