An old line says ignorance of the law is no excuse, although.  I don’t know how an average Idahoan can any longer know what all the laws are in this state.

every decade Idaho has 3-thousand new state laws

A figure from the Idaho Statesman tells us starting July 1st more than 300 new laws are going to go on the books.

This is probably an average year.  Which means every decade Idaho has 3-thousand new state laws.

I’m not saying these are all bad.  Many, many are very good and also help clarify some existing laws but, Judas Priest, maybe some need to have attached sunset provisions.  Then in 3 to 5 years we can re-examine effectiveness!  If the law isn’t working then it can be discarded.
