Approximately 15 Idaho Republican legislators were present at a press briefing today and laid out what they called the “Idaho Conservative Agenda 2022.”
Leading the press briefing today was State Senator Christy Zito (R-Hammett). Zito is one of two State Senators who signed onto the plan along with 28 House members for a total of 30 legislators.

Idaho’s Conservative Senators and Representatives are proud to present The Idaho Conservative Agenda for 2022.
This year, the conservative legislators will focus on these goals: Restore Freedoms, Lower Taxes, and Less Government.
Conservative legislators know that without election integrity, a representative republic does not function, this issue is at the top of the list of priorities.
The voice of the people needs to be properly heard through Their senators and representatives who understand their oath of office and who work for the people.
Other important freedoms include protection of medical autonomy and privacy, education choice, protecting family rights, keeping businesses open, and defending our Constitutionally protected rights including our right to keep and bear arms and self-defense.
The 2022 legislative session will be crucial for Idaho families and businesses.
We have important work to do to keep Idaho prosperous, restore Idaho’s robust economy, make sure the massive surplus in Idaho’s budget is returned to the taxpayers who rightfully deserve it.
Idaho should not sell its sovereignty for the price of federal grants (and the rules coming with them). We can and must reduce property taxes, repeal the tax on groceries, and ease other tax burdens on families and businesses.
The Idaho Conservative Agenda for 2022 is the roadmap for achieving these goals.
We encourage everyone who is ready to move Idaho forward with robust economic growth, limited government, and maximum personal freedom to get a copy of the Idaho Conservative Agenda by asking their conservative senator or representative for one.
Thousands of hard copies of the Agenda are available for distribution across the state.
We are ready on Day 1 with this Idaho Conservative Agenda.
It will put the legislature on the path toward productivity and advancing conservative values.
We are excited to get to work on both reducing and improving Idaho’s government, so it truly works to the benefit of Idaho families and businesses.
