Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Moyle's website highlights the following campaign themes:[1]

Small Business Incentive

  • Excerpt: "I sponsored the Small Employer Incentive Act of 2005 (HB431) which changes the calculation for qualification, which would allow more small businesses to qualify. What this bill does, and what we must continue to do, is create a system that helps small businesses grow and provide good jobs."

Eminent Domain

  • Excerpt: "I worked on, and supported HB525 which amends Idaho’s Local Land Use Planning Act. It protects pre-existing property rights and future development from a condemning authority. Property owners must have land protected from government, and never have the fear that it can be taken away."

Personal Property Tax Elimination

  • Excerpt: "We must provide our businesses with incentives to allow them to grow, provide good wages for employees and build our local economy."

GARVEE

  • Excerpt: "I voted to provide funding for better and safer roads and highways through GARVEE bonding authority in HB657. This bill would provide $134 million dollars to improve our Treasure Valley roads and interstate, and make this improvement before costs continue to increase for materials, fuel and labor."

Air Quality

  • Excerpt: "I voted to improve our air quality by supporting HB586, which provides for a vehicle inspection and maintenance program. I felt that is was important to protect the Treasure Valley’s air quality and keep our valley clean. HB586 provides exemptions to farmers and heavy machinery. "

Issues

Anti-bullying bill

In April 2011, Moyle expected a stalled bill that would have strengthened the state’s anti-bullying law to come back in some form next session. Moyle said there were a few problems with the bill this time around that prevented it from getting a vote in the House.

“The title was wrong on the bill, it didn’t fit what was in the bill," said Moyle. "There was also a word that needed to be changed down at the bottom of the bill.”

Moyle said there was talk of sending it back to committee to make the necessary fixes, but the sponsors of the bill didn’t want to do that.

“There was a lot of controversy around that bill," said Moyle. "Some people were against it and some people really liked it. But, in the end, if the title is no good and a word needs fixing, the bill is no good. I expect you’ll see it again next year and there will be some touch-ups, the title will be fixed obviously, and it will be a better bill.”[2]

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.[13]

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.[14]

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.[15] Moyle received a score of 92 points in the 2013 index, ranking 11th out of 70 members of the Idaho House of Representatives that were evaluated for the study.

Personal

Moyle and his wife, Sue Ann, have three children.
