|Idaho Committee Assignments, 2013|
|• Health and Welfare|
|• Transportation and Defense|
Hixon's campaign website listed the following issues:
- 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."
- 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."
- Fiscal Responsibility
- Excerpt: "I disagree with the way our federal government spends our hard earned tax dollars and I do not support deficit spending."
- 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."
- Social Issues
- 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."

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.
