|Idaho Committee Assignments, 2013|
|• Agricultural Affairs|
|• Judiciary, Rules, and Administration|
|• Revenue and Taxation|
Dayley's campaign website listed the following issues:
- Excerpt: "State government should continue on the zero based budgeting process initiated by Governor Otter. Just as a family budget must be constantly reviewed to make sure revenue and expenses are in balance, government must also be in a constant state of review in order to maintain the proper equilibrium between needs and wants."
- Excerpt: "My goal is to provide the opportunity for every student to experience educational success. Success is achieved when each individual is instilled with a love of learning."
- Budget/Economic Policy
- Excerpt: "I will be an advocate for reducing spending. Government actions should positively promote economic growth. We must search for ways to limit growth of government spending, limit taxes and thus allow individual Idahoans to be the primary decision-makers regarding how to spend their money."
- Excerpt: "An important way government can encourage job creation is through minimization of regulations and taxes. It is also important for government to ensure the accessibility of good public services such as transportation and communication, along with the availability of a quality-trained workforce."
- State Rights
- Excerpt: " One of the most important ways to control too much power at the federal level is for states to pursue proper federal government performance under the tenth amendment, protecting rights of the state and the people."

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. Dayley received a score of 63 points in the 2013 index, ranking 25th out of 70 members of the Idaho House of Representatives that were evaluated for the study.
