|Idaho Committee Assignments, 2013|
|• Health and Welfare|
|• Transportation and Defense|
Hixon's website highlights the following campaign themes:
Role of Government
- Excerpt: "I believe that the people are the executive directors of Government, and I recognize that all individuals have inalienable God-given rights which MAY NOT be diminished by any government entity. I will fight to keep the Idaho budget balanced and to also restore our rainy day funds whenever possible. I will try to limit the size of government and make sure that taxes stay low."
The Federal and Idaho Constitution
- Excerpt: "These documents are sacred. It is because of these that we have lived in freedom for hundreds of years. I will uphold both the State and Federal constitution when considering legislation for the State of Idaho and District 10."
- Excerpt: "I disagree with the way our federal government spends our hard earned tax dollars and I do not support deficit spending. It is of the utmost importance that we as a District, County, State and Country practice fiscal responsibility."
- Excerpt: "I believe that Idahoans deserve a fair tax system, which should also be business-friendly in order to create local jobs. I think that a fair tax system should NEVER become a burden to our families, but rather just the right amount to run the necessary factions of government."
- Excerpt: "I have always been a voice in the fight against abortion. I believe that marriage is between one man and one woman and I do not support gay marriage. I support the freedom of religion, and recognize that we have many different faiths and beliefs around the state and district, however, this country was founded on Christian principles and that should never be forgotten."

Legislative scorecards are used to evaluate elected public officials based on voting record. Some scorecards are created by political advocacy groups with a focus on specific issues, while others are developed by newspapers and are broad in scope. Scorecards are meant to be used as a tool for voters to have a quick picture of whether their views align with a particular legislator's record.
Because scorecards can be specific to particular issues or general to a state’s legislative term, for example, each report should be considered on its own merits. Each entity that publishes these reports uses different methodologies and definitions for the terms used.
Please see our writing guidelines if you would like to add results from an individual scorecard to this legislator's profile.
- Legislators are scored on their votes on bills "impacting economic freedom in the state."
- Legislators are scored on their stances on conservative issues.
Idaho Freedom Index
The Idaho Freedom Foundation, an Idaho-based, nonprofit educational research institute, released its "Idaho Freedom Index" in 2013. The index intended to show how Idaho legislators voted on the principles the Foundation seeks to promote. It measured each state legislator based on two tiers, which include whether legislators voted for or against bills that would create or eliminate government agencies, programs, and regulations, and bills that would impact the free market in a positive or negative way. Scores ranged from the highest possible score for members of the state Senate (194 points) and for members of the state House (180 points). A higher score indicated that the legislator voted more in favor of the values supported by the Foundation. Hixon received a score of -14 points in the 2013 index, ranking 36th out of 70 members of the Idaho House of Representatives that were evaluated for the study.
