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.”[1]

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.[8] 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.


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