The Idaho Republican Party believes that due to state and federal governments administering the majority of Idaho lands, we need to limit and reduce the amount of land owned or administered by the federal government. We believe Idaho should manage and administer all state and federal lands.
We believe the administration of federal environmental policy must be modified. These policies must give equal consideration to potential human suffering caused by restriction or elimination of basic human needs such as jobs, energy and overall quality of life. We support federal and state measures to reestablish the primacy of state government for implementation of environmental policy.
Problems should be solved as close to the level as they originate as possible. Prosperity is highest when power is decentralized and solutions are kept local.
