Be Heard

BE HEARD BY JULY 3rd! RIGHT NOW THE CITIZENS CAN COMMENT! We have an unprecedented opportunity to have our voices heard on ANY state rule that we have concerns about! State law requires that the public receive notification when a state agency initiates proposed rulemaking procedures and be given an opportunity to comment to that rulemaking. Due to the lack of vote at the end of Legislative Session last year the rules department has published ALL the temporary rules and they must provide us opportunity to comment on them.
However, COMMENTS CLOSE July 3rd (10 days!). 


Now is the time to have a real and meaningful impact on the 8200+ pages of Idaho Rules and Regulations up for public input. Remember that the Legislature did not automatically approve all the rules at the end of last session. Review how this happened read an overview on page 2>

It is really that simple to make a difference. Complaining and getting angry with government will not fix government; only involvement and civil communication will.  I hope you get involved in this GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY! – Heather Scott

There are THOUSANDS upon THOUSANDS of pages of rules.
