Bill description: HB 419 would ensure that only laws and judicial action which protects the fundamental rights guaranteed in the U.S. and Idaho constitutions are enforced in the state of Idaho.
Does it violate the spirit or the letter of either the US Constitution or the Idaho Constitution? Examples include restrictions on speech, public assembly, the press, privacy, private property, or firearms. Conversely, does it restore or uphold the protections guaranteed in U.S. Constitution or the Idaho Constitution?
HB 419 would state that the application of foreign laws in Idaho, which do not guarantee protections recognized in either the U.S. or Idaho constitution would be invalid in this state. This would ensure that laws, contracts, and other actions are not taken by individual parties or the government which violate constitutional rights such as the freedom of religion or free speech.
