Rep. Heather Scott – District 1
Summer is here!
As we enjoy the awesome endless possibilities summer has to offer here in Idaho, I want to give you a brief reality check. Just because the state legislature is not in session does not mean government is at rest. Agencies, bureaucrats and lobbyists work year round. Proposed rules and regulations are being drafted nearly every business day. Our republic needs your regular participation and diligence, even in the summer. So grab something cold, put your feet up on the deck, review some draft legislation, provide direction to elected officials and sleep better at night knowing you are vigilant.
Incident in Twin Falls Idaho
Many citizens from around the state have been contacting me seeking information about the child rape incident, the refugee resettlement program, and asking why they are not hearing more from their own legislators on this important issue.
Below is a link to a letter I sent to each of your Idaho legislators a few days ago, urging them to take a more active interest in this developing situation, educate themselves on the facts and keep their constituents updated. I urge all of you to contact your elected officials and share your concerns on this issue and other issues surrounding the federal refugee program and what is happening in our state.
