Legislative Update – Rep. Sage G. Dixon – District 1
As this was our final week in Session, all of the Committee meetings were at the “call of the chair”, which means only as necessary. In order to finish by our target date of March 25th, we began having floor Sessions twice a day, with only a break for lunch.
From my perspective, this was a productive Session. While there were some obvious disappointments, I feel progress is being made. Smaller government, less spending, upholding our State and National Constitutions, and Federalism all were discussed openly in Committees and on the Floor. As your Representative, I chaired three sub-Committees, successfully carried four Bills on the House floor, promoted our local economy, educational opportunity, and the strengthening of our State. I also helped author amendments to the REAL ID Act with the hope of protecting our privacy and security, although the Senate unfortunately removed the strongest language.
Idaho is moving in the right direction and I am thankful to have been a part of the process these past two years.
