Issues

Campaign themes

2012

Van Orden's campaign website listed the following issues:[1]

  • Idaho Agriculture for Economic Stability
Excerpt: "In Idaho we protect our land and natural resources. Extremist environmental and animal rights agendas have no place in our state. Environmental lawsuits are putting our ranchers and farmers out of business by increasing production costs and disallowing productivity. Idaho decision makers must be willing to do all they can to curb this extreme, destabilizing agenda."
  • Education Reform
Excerpt: "Through the years as I volunteered in the classrooms throughout my school district I became aware of the demands and mandates enforced on teachers and administrators. It seemed to me that there was never a reduction in what was required, just a replacement or addition. With the increased amounts of technical knowledge and skills that teachers will be receiving, I would like to make it possible for them to rid their plates of the amount of requirements that have been building up over time."

Scorecards

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.[9] Van Orden received a score of -17 points in the 2013 index, ranking 39th out of 70 members of the Idaho House of Representatives that were evaluated for the study.
