It is almost laughable that the Legislature will have a hearing on a bill to protect Idahoans from the imposition of foreign laws, such as Sharia Law. In contrast, Republican leadership has indicated they would not schedule a hearing if a bill should be re-introduced to remove the special exemption that allows some former legislators to gain full-time retirement benefits for years of part-time employment. The special exemption enables a select few to unfairly benefit at the expense of everyone else in the retirement system. The special exemption for legislators is an existing injustice, and it should be repealed.
