|Idaho Committee Assignments, 2015|
|• Environment, Energy, and Technology|
|• Resources and Conservation|
Rubel's website highlighted the following campaign themes:
- Excerpt: "Idaho is now 50th in the nation in family income and 50th in school funding. We need to change our strategy – now. I believe the first step is serious investment in our education system, starting with implementation of the reforms recommended by the Governor’s Task Force on Education."
- Excerpt: "It is time for us to accept Medicaid expansion dollars so that Idahoans can get the coverage and the return on their tax dollars that they deserve. We cannot afford to keep throwing away hundreds of millions of dollars just to prove an ideological point."
- Excerpt: "Ilana is focused on making Idaho a magnet for strong businesses and good jobs. To succeed, we must train a workforce with 21st century skills and continue to listen to the needs of Idaho businesses. Ilana regularly meets with businesspeople – large and small – to ensure she’s helping to facilitate their success."
- Excerpt: "Idaho’s rivers, mountains, forests and wildlife make this a unique and extraordinary place in which to live, camp, hike, raft, fish, hunt and recreate. Ilana will always fight to protect our wilderness, clean air and water, and access to open spaces."
- Excerpt: "Ilana is a fervent advocate of Constitutional freedoms, and volunteer-teaches classes on the Constitution and Bill of Rights to Boise schoolkids. She co-sponsored the 'Add the Words' bill, and believes that all our citizens are entitled to equal protection from discrimination."

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.
