Re: “After Emotional Hearing, Idaho House Panel OKs Bill to License Sign Language Interpreters

i don't have time to give an articulate and elaborate response. bottom line: dumb, unnecessary law sponsored by big gov GOP. stop taking personal responsibility and accountability away from your citizens. if the folks that want to use these terps don't do their own research, then it's on them. no need to make it harder to become a term in a limited field already by including a fee.

and news flash, just because the gov't approves it as safe doesn't mean it is and will always be safe. people still get food sick from gov approved restaurants, people still get injured due to malpractice from govt approved drs..big gov goons

Re: “Bill Emerges That Would Give 'Leeway' to Passing Motorists on Idaho Highways

Many people "spend eternity" in Idaho trying to get health care, decent wages, and other basic human needs. But the Idaho Neanderthals (no not a new sports team. It's our governor and legislators) are more concerned about faster driving.

I thought I was having a bad dream but no, it's just Idaho.

"No, increased risk for impatience makes no sense."

If a car is 5mph under the speed limit and you pass by the 5mph, or 7 ft / sec is too slow for safe passing. Counting a the following gap when you start your pass and when you left enough room to merge back by not speeding your version of passing could take 15 second. That is too long and not safer.

We could also do away with speed limits on the interstate, especially where it is less congested. speed limits were never implemented for safety but due to the federal gov and trying to protect the environment. the speed limit stuck as the state saw it being profitable. no victim, no crime. do away with the limits.

Re: “Bill Emerges That Would Give 'Leeway' to Passing Motorists on Idaho Highways

how about we get rid of the bad laws? or allow law enforcement to use discretion?it's common sense that majority of folks passing will be going over the speed limit. man idaho.....still sitting in the stone age with dumb laws and big gov GOP.

Washington State is adding passing lanes to many highways. Three will be added to the Pullman - Spokane highway this year.

That isn't going to happen in Idaho. It is more important to give millionaires tax-cuts rather than make our highways safer.

Re: “Bill Emerges That Would Give 'Leeway' to Passing Motorists on Idaho Highways

No, increased risk for impatience makes no sense. I've seen the double line for passing on a 2 lane in too many places that would not allow a blanket change like this to be a safe one. It's not about whether or not you'll get a ticket.

I'm so glad we don't have anything important for our legislators to be concerned about.

Re: “Idaho Legislator, Sponsor of Anti-Sanctuary Bill: 'I've Been Called Things That Wouldn't Be Printable'

The bill creates a registry of illegal aliens. Not criminal immigrants, just because u are arrested does not make u guilty. Innocent until proven guilty, meaning at the time they research the immigration status you are legally Innocent. This law is unamerican and unconstitutional.

Thank you for your honest reporting on this. I also want to recognize Lindsay and Holly Thomas Mowery for their interpreting work, as well. The team of interpreters worked together well.

The insane age of open borders is over. Lol @ the irony of liberals supporting something pushed by multi billion dollar corporations exclusively for profit.

I DO NOT understand all the dislikes and negative comments. Do you not realize what's at stake here? I would love to have you explain your reasons for the dislikes. Would appreciate hearing why you are so willing to protect criminals.

Re: “Idaho Legislator, Sponsor of Anti-Sanctuary Bill: 'I've Been Called Things That Wouldn't Be Printable'

Having grown up in CA where ILLEGALS are everywhere AND cost the taxpayers a LOT of money each year, I agree with this bill. So-called "sanctuary cities" that PROTECT those being harmed are one thing, but these are not those type of cities. These are trying to protect persons who BROKE THE LAWS OF AMERICA and NOT those who came here LEGALLY and deserve the chance to a better themselves and their families. They also violate FEDERAL LAW, which the liberals usually claim is superior to state law. I know people who came here LEGALLY, spent THOUSANDS of dollars and many long years to become CITIZENS. They would be appalled at these cities protecting those who refused to follow the same rules they CHOSE to.

Too bad Idaho citizens have to endure such a hateful ignorant "lawmaker".....he should be, but probably won't be, ashamed for such a position.

Re: “UPDATE: Idaho House Kills Bill That Would Outlaw Lottery's Electronic Touch-Tabs

Anti-Trust laws need to be implemented on the World Wide Monopolized Media, mostly fake news coming from these monoliths...Part them out and sell them off. As for your Hitler comment Hitler was not elected by the people he took power by force, like the rioters brown shirts in the streets today for example Berkeley California suppressing free speech....... When you report Fake News and incite the people to riot it has consequences called sedition..

Re: “It's Back: Anti-Sharia Law Measure Resurfaces at Idaho Legislature

An utter waste of time and taxpayer money. Under no circumstance would any foreign law ever supercede domestic law on U.S. soil. Such legislation is redundant and serves only to occupy space.

Re: “Lottery Bills Surface at Idaho Statehouse Aimed at Anonymity and Procurement Rules

Seriously? When you win a significant amount of money, you must change your phone number, email, even address (you can change the name on deed or county records). There should at least be referrals for winners to follow a procedure to keep the scammers to a minimum. There will always be the scammers, unfortunately
