Don’t Be Passive to Legislative Change
The 2nd Regular Session of the 2018 Idaho Legislature got under way on January 8, 2018. The agenda is set and the issues are vast. Hidden among the many subjects under discussion are changes which will affect you and your family for good or ill. The outcome may seem inevitable but it can be influenced. Therefore, if you care about what happens in Idaho government, you can’t afford to remain ignorant or passive. The Democratic minority is working to make our state government more responsive, accountable, and transparent, however they can’t do it alone. They need you to be informed and involved.
