Idaho Supreme Court schedules hearing for Reclaim Idaho initiative rights case

BOISE, Idaho (KIFI) - The Idaho Supreme Court announced Thursday morning it will hear Reclaim Idaho’s case against the new anti-initiatives law.

The hearing is scheduled for June 29 at 10 a.m. It will take place on Zoom and will be accessible to the public via live stream.

Reclaim Idaho believes the new law violates the constitutional right of Idahoans to propose initiatives, and the organization is asking the Supreme Court to strike down the law.

The Idaho Attorney General, who will defend the anti-initiatives law in court, requested last month the Idaho Supreme Court deny the case a hearing.

On Thursday, the Court decided to schedule a hearing for the case and in response to Reclaim Idaho’s request, to hear the case on an expedited schedule.

“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to argue our case on behalf of the people of Idaho,” said Luke Mayville, co-founder of Reclaim Idaho. “The initiative process has been the guaranteed right of Idaho citizens for over 100 years. For the thousands of Idahoans who are paying close attention, it is a great relief to know that the Idaho Supreme Court understands the urgency of this issue.”

  1. Reclaim is wrong, it needs to be Take Over Idaho for Liberals….

    https://lmtribune.com/opinion/what-is-reclaim-idaho-who-knows-but-grassroots-it-s-not/article_9c46d09b-ed51-5a82-a865-a2cb53434178.html

    They hate this new law! Why?
    Before the law, they needed a percentage of the entire voters and that could be obtained in one or two liberal leaning cities; disregarding all other areas.
    With the new law, they have to get a percentage of EACH VOTING DISTRICT; meaning they have to go to ALL districts in the state and that just does not work for a group of liberals who want to change Idaho’s conservative views.

    Be careful, they are not wanting to reclaim Idaho, they want to TAKE OVER IDAHO for the CA/NY liberals.
