Voting no on HJR5

To the editor,

The vote concerning HJR5 in next Tuesday’s election is a waste of time and taxpayers’ money. The legislature passed this law over the objections of Idaho’s Attorney General who said it was unconstitutional in his opinion, and now the legislature wants to make it constitutional by putting it in the Idaho constitution.

We taxpayers have already wasted over $2 million dollars defending laws the legislature passed over the objections of our AG, and the courts declared them all unconstitutional as he predicted. Let’s let the Idaho Supreme Court look at this law before it goes into our constitution to see if it passes muster. I don’t think it will. I’m voting no on HJR5.
