Our Local Economy

Our State Budget
- Excerpt: "I will support maintaining reserves for the future. I am happy to report that we were able to reinstate some of the programs that we had to reduce or eliminate. All state employees received a raise this year. I continue to have the goal of serving on the Joint Finance and Appropriation committee."
Jobs and the Economy
- Excerpt: "We in Idaho are fortunate to have many attributes that appeal to new businesses. We have a young well trained labor force that is ready to go to work. We have a balanced budget and therefore, don’t have a lot of debit that must be repaid. We must work to attract new business to locate in Idaho."
- Excerpt: "I believe that education reform is a must, however, I also believe that we will always rely on great teachers in the classroom."
Transportation in Idaho
- Excerpt: "The need is clear, however, the question remains as to how to fund the increased spending among all users. I will continue to explore ways to improve the road system with the cost being shared by all users."

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. Gibbs received a score of -42 points in the 2013 index, ranking 57th out of 70 members of the Idaho House of Representatives that were evaluated for the study.
Gibbs and his wife, Bonne, have two children.
