  1. Propose state projects to improve our infrastructure so that Out of State businesses relocate here!!

    Our schools, roads and city services need to reflect that we as a state are ready to grow! Do not look to one sector, as in tourism. Look for green, non-polluting businesses to relocate here because we have good schools, hospitals, Universities where they make sense to help THEM and our communities viable alternatives to other places.

  2. Consolidate the University System

    There are three state universities in Boise! Idaho should have one university system for administration purposes. Also, classes should be readily transferrable from one university to another.

  3. There should be one health insurance pool for everyone

    Get rid of insurance pools by company. There should be one pool for the whole state. I have the same health risk regardless of the size of my company. In anycase, Big Blue insures me where ever I go, so it really does not matter who I work for.

  4. Save highway paint costs.

    If highway lanes are painted annually, consider painting 5 linear feet, skip next ten, then paint next 5. Adjust starting point 5 feet each year. Paint costs would be reduced by 66% each year. Cost of labor could potentially decrease as well--more miles per day could be covered.

  8. tax on soft drinks

    1% additional tax on sugared soft drinks, chips, candy. No additional tax on sugar free beverages. These are purchases of choice so paying the tax is a choice.

  10. I have a plan to make Idaho free of the juggernaut of health insurance and malpractice.

    Free us of the healthcare burden. Create tax free, direct pay, group healthcare accounts, no insurance middle man. Limit liability for doctors so that they don't need malpractice ins. The state can start the program and blue cross can go monopolize some other state. No more dozens of office workers trying to get one bill paid. See the rest of the plan on Facebook. The National Rational Party under groups.

  11. School Insurance Ideas

    Is it possible for all the school districts in the state to group together and get a better rate for insurance? Doing this should make it more affordable for the districts and allow employees to add their families to the insurance whereas before they couldn't afford it. Don't insurance companies give better rates for larger organizations?

  12. Make agencys responcible for themselves

    Rather than concentrating on makng thr capital building more effeicient, why not put more people to work and create sales tax income, state tax fuel taxes, the basics. Why not put the State Inmates Back in prision and Let the Unemployed back to work? Who's gonna make more money? Why 'doctor' the number by saying the Unemployment numbers for January and Febuary will be down. Tell why... People like me who have used all thier unemployment benifits bucause they cannot find work. Partly because we have undocumented worers who send there tax money to mexico. Or The State Prisinor that…

  13. Rent empty office space in state buildings to small businesses

    Empty cubicles already have the infrastructure in place for a small business to rent the space for their office workers. Make some money instead of saving it!

  16. Dyed Fuels vs. taxable fuels

    Compel IRS to add more staff to investigate use of non-taxable fuels on highway vehicles. OR add staff to Tax Commission to do this. Gas receipts are down.. What is the statistics on dyed fuels volumes?

  17. Taking away the SAT and ACT tests

    I believe in order to save money the state should cut the SAT and ACT tests. These tests do not determine if one is smart enough or not for college. A student’s school transcripts show enough. They show if the student tried to push themselves and take hard classes. The transcripts show if the student tried or not all four years of high school. One test that students dread to take one early Saturday morning I believe definitely does not show how smart a student is. If we cut these tests, the state will not have to pay for the…

  18. Eliminate Tobacco

    I think that Idaho should outlaw or extremely limit the use of tobacco products. Annually, the state governments spend 13.3 billion dollars paying for medical issues that are a direct result of smoking. That amounts to over 26 million dollars (on average) per state. Were smoking to be eliminated or severely restricted, that would be 26 million more dollars that could be put towards something else.

  19. Change Idaho Schools!

    I think schools should go down to a four day week because it would cost the government less money, and the money parents would be spending would help out the day cares, and help the economy because those day cares will have more money to spend which in turn will put more money into our economy.  This way schools could spend the money they get on keeping extra curricular programs like sports and art classes while keeping the budget down because they wont have to pay to have the kids there another day.  Also, maybe increasing lunch prices by $.50

  20. Make Employees/Employers Responsible

    Employee's that do not do their jobs, take up space and resources, should be fired. It's time to get rid of the good ol' boy system and make people accountable. That's a big savings alone.
