The Idaho attorney general’s recent press release opposing HJR5 reminds us of the big baby from the movie, “Honey, I blew up the Kid,” crying “No nap.”
Idaho agencies regularly promulgate and adopt rules in contravention of existing statutes. National lobbyists know that “you can pass any rule in Idaho” and they send their most repressive, liberal, socialist rules to Idaho for trial runs.
The A.G. calls any attempt on the part of the Legislature to reign-in and discipline its own child “a power grab.” The AG and his agencies need a nap and we need HJR 5.
