Hispanic Health Programs Funds Increased by Republicans

Representative Hixon and House Republicans unanimously supported SB1076, legislation which bolsters funding for the Commission on Hispanic Affairs. Under the legislation, spending authority for an additional $10,000 is granted which will make it possible to spend private contributions on various community activities including the Hispanic Youth Summit. This represents an 11.4% increase in the dedicated fund dollars for community activities including the Hispanic Youth Summit.

Got Government Overreach? Rep. Hixon Has Got Solutions!

Today House Bill 137 was up before the House of Representatives. The bill changed a law relating to Urban Renewal. Currently the Urban Renewal law states that "Urban renewal agencies, within its area of operation, to enter into any building or property in any urban renewal area in order to make inspections, surveys, appraisals, soundings or test borings..." Representative Hixon and House Republicans voted to strike this unconstitutional language, effectively cutting off government overreach.

2nd Amendment Rights Bill Co-Sponsored by Rep. Hixon

Why does it seem like Washington DC is constantly trying to diminish our 2nd Amendment rights? The 2nd amendment was NEVER about hunting, it was about the right to protect yourself and your family against government tyranny. Representative Hixon is the Co-sponsor to House Bill 229, which draws a line in the sand relating to firearms made in Idaho. It amends Idaho Code 18-3315A with a new paragraph that reads:
Any firearm or firearm accessory that is subject to any federal law
or executive order, but which is manufactured in Idaho and remains within the borders of Idaho, is not subject to the authority of congress to regulate under its commerce power because of the federal prohibition against such firearm or firearm accessory in interstate commerce. Therefore, any firearm or firearm accessory federally prohibited under the authority of congress to regulate interstate commerce may be manufactured, transferred, possessed or owned within the borders of Idaho.

Rep. Hixon Votes to Restore 30 Million to Idaho Schools

Today, Representative Brandon Hixon and House Republicans passed House Bill 65 that would restore 30 million dollars back to Idaho's schools. This funding was essentially sitting idle after the repeal of the Propositions.

Rep. Hixon and House Republicans Vote for Job Creation Bill

Representative Brandon Hixon and House Republicans overwhelmingly supported HB 88, legislation designed to create new jobs by providing a hiring incentive tax credit for Idaho businesses.
The legislation was written to simplify the “Hire One More Employee” tax credit process. It also provides a $1000 tax credit incentive if a newly hired employee is a veteran.
The bill’s sponsor, Representative Mike Moyle, (R) Star, said, “A new job is a benefit to the entire state of Idaho. This legislation makes the process simpler for businesses to hire new employees.”
The bill now moves forward to the Senate for a committee hearing.

TODAY IS ELECTION DAY 2012!

If you live in Legislative District 10 (most of Caldwell and West Nampa) please consider me for your vote. I am your Republican Nominee, and I have worked hard the last 5 years to make Canyon County a better place to live and work.

I face a Democrat opponent today that supports Obama-like policies including bigger government, expansion of gay rights, higher taxes and opposition to choice in education. There are very good reasons why a Democrat hasn't been elected in Canyon County for over 30 years. What you will get with me being your State Representative is a young man that will stand strong for Idaho and her people.

We need a resilient voice in the Idaho Legislature that will not falter under enormous pressures, special interest groups, or even Chicago-style personal attacks. I will work hand in hand with my constituency on all issues in this State. I will be a champion in representing my people at the Idaho State Capitol. I will continue to fight off harmful Federal policy, keep taxes low, and protect our Constitutional rights.

If you have any questions about my race or my policy views my personal cell number is 440-1074. Please call me anytime. I cordially ask you to join Representative Darrell Bolz, Senator Jim Rice, and Mayor Garrett Nancolas in voting for Brandon Hixon for District 10, House of Representatives Seat A. I would also recommend a vote for Romney/Ryan, Senator Jim Rice, and Representative Darrell Bolz. Thank you for your consideration. I look forward to serving you in the Idaho State Capitol.

I first met Brandon Hixon when he showed up my door to introduce himself as the Republican Nominee for District 10, House Seat A.

I just met a gentleman running for an open seat in District 10. His name is Brandon Hixon and he\'s a stand up guy. He is young and told me he has a lot to learn but to the contrary, he was very in the know on the few issues I asked him about. He also has ideas regarding using technology so that his constituents can live stream with him and weigh in on different issues as they come up.
