Issues

Wolf population

On April 19, 2011, Gov. Butch Otter signed a bill that would essentially allow him to declare a disaster due to the state’s wolf population, even as the animals were in the process of being removed the endangered species list.

Otter, the legislature, and the state court had been debating the wolf population issue for months when Otter signed this bill. A few weeks before the bill was signed, Rep. Mike Simpson inserted language to de-list the animals into a spending bill. This language that was inserted into the federal appropriation is not subject to judicial review, meaning that de-listing is almost guaranteed.

At least one conservation group, Defenders of Wildlife, opposed Simpson’s move and said that it’s an example of lawmakers playing politics with wolf populations.

The main backer of the state bill that Otter signed, Rep. Judy Boyle says the disaster declaration bill is still relevant because the state will be on probation for wolf management for the five years after de-listing. She also said that congressional uncertainty creates the need for the bill.

“What one Congress gives, one Congress can take away,” warned Boyle. ”We never know what the federal government will do and it’s notorious for going back on its word.”[1]

Scorecards

See also: State legislative scorecards and State legislative scorecards in Idaho

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.

An overview for scorecards in all 50 states can be found on this page. To contribute to the list of Idaho scorecards, email suggestions to scorecards@ballotpedia.org.

Please see our writing guidelines if you would like to add results from an individual scorecard to this legislator's profile.

2013

In 2013, the Idaho State Legislature was in session from January 7 through April 4.[11]

Legislators are scored on their votes on bills "impacting economic freedom in the state."

2012

In 2012, the Idaho State Legislature was in session from January 9 through March 29.[12]

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.[13] Boyle received a score of 120 points in the 2013 index, ranking 4th out of 70 members of the Idaho House of Representatives that were evaluated for the study.
