As many of you may know, one of my assignments as a state senator is to serve on the board of the Idaho Health Insurance Exchange. As a result, I have a number of contacts in the health insurance industry. I am hearing that repealing Obamacare would result in significantly reducing the cost of health insurance. It would allow insurance companies in Idaho to sell insurance that meets the needs and desires of Idahoans.
I spent half an hour with Paul J and Chris this morning. We talked about the progress on increasing hours for boat inspections to keep zebra and quagga mussels out of our waters, efforts to obtain the funds to address I84, among other issues.
Tomorrow, Thursday, morning at 8:30 am I will be on KBOI. We will cover some of the things going on at the legislature.
All of us who represent Canyon County are working hard to create a path forward in addressing the needed repairs on I84 in Canyon County. We are working to get funding to start widening immediately from Franklin in Nampa to the Karcher interchange. We hope to accomplish this before the legislature adjourns.
