Legislative Activity Picks Up in Anticipation of February Deadlines

Posted By Justin Ruen, Thursday, February 5, 2015

The first few weeks of the legislative session are relatively quiet and relaxed as committees focus on reviewing administrative rules and few bills are introduced.  Starting in early February as the Legislature approaches deadlines for bill drafting requests (February 9) and introduction of bills by non-privileged committees (February 16) the pace of legislative activity quickens and committees start introducing lots of bills.    

New bills are being added every day to the AIC Bill Tracker and we urge city officials to check it out.  If you have questions or comments on any bill, please email jruen@idahocities.org

Thanks for Making City Officials’ Day at the Capitol a Success!

Posted By Justin Ruen, Monday, February 2, 2015

Nearly 180 Idaho city officials participated in the 2015 City Officials’ Day at the Capitol last Thursday (list of attendees).  Almost all of the 105 members of the Idaho Legislature were in attendance, as well as all of Idaho’s constitutional officers and several state agency representatives.

The highlight of the morning legislative briefing was a legislative leadership panel moderated by Dr. Jim Weatherby, which included Speaker of the House Scott Bedke, Senate President Pro Tem Brent Hill, House Minority Leader John Rusche and Senate Minority Leader Michelle Stennett.  The panelists provided great insight on several issues, including transportation funding, local option taxation, and the Rangen water call.  At lunch city officials had an excellent opportunity to discuss issues with their legislators.

Thanks again for making this year’s City Officials’ Day at the Capitol a success!

See You at City Officials’ Day at the Capitol!

Posted By Justin Ruen, Monday, January 26, 2015

We look forward to seeing everyone at Thursday’s City Officials’ Day at the Capitol in Boise.  You still have time to register here at the AIC website.

The event will kick off with a legislative briefing at 9:00 a.m. in the Summit Auditorium of the Boise Centre.  The briefing will feature a panel moderated by Dr. James Weatherby that will include Speaker of the House Scott Bedke, Senate President Pro Tem Brent Hill, House Minority Leader John Rusche and Senate Minority Leader Michelle Stennett. 

You will also hear about a variety of policy hot topics, including transportation funding, annexation, public defense reform, public records, Special Assistant U.S. Attorney, municipal water rights, local option taxation, and urban renewal.

The meeting will break at 11:30 a.m. to allow city officials to walk or catch a shuttle bus to the capitol, meet their legislators and escort them to the legislative luncheon at Noon in the Boise Centre Eagles Room. 

After lunch city officials can attend legislative committee hearings, check out the capitol, or schedule meetings with legislators or state agency staff.
