Simpson Joins Bipartisan Vote to Repeal Withholding Tax


Idaho Congressman Mike Simpson today lauded passage of legislation to repeal a 3% withholding on government contractors. H.R. 674 passed the House by a strong bipartisan vote of 405-16. Simpson has been a cosponsor of this legislation since 2008. “Democrats and Republicans alike recognize that allowing this provision of law to go into effect would increase costs for state and local governments and adversely impact small businesses,” said Simpson. “Idaho businesses, universities, and communities have all contacted me with their concern about the 3% withholding tax, and ...


Simpson,a Probl.-Solver on Envir. Issues, Remains EPA Critic


Over the door to Rep. Mike Simpson's office, next to the mounted head of an elk his father shot, hangs a quote by 19th century statesman Henry Clay, whose negotiations delayed the start of the Civil War. "Politics is not about ideological purity or moral self-righteousness, it's about governing," it reads. "If you cannot compromise you cannot govern." Simpson (R-Idaho) has earned his own reputation on Capitol Hill and with constituent groups as a legislator who will work with sometime opponents and Democrats to craft legislation -- a quality that is in short supply in today's political ...


Rep. Mike Simpson on a fundraising roll


Congressman Mike Simpson is looking very, very good in red. In January, the Idaho Falls Republican donned the robes of a “cardinal” — Capitol Hill shorthand for the 12 House Appropriations subcommittee chairmen. The crimson outfit has done wonders for his campaign bank account. Through the first nine months of the two-year election cycle, Simpson raised about $401,000, more than twice the $183,000 he raised in the same period in 2009. Since 2003, when quarterly reporting started, Simpson had averaged $164,000 for the first nine months. “It’s always easier to ...

Simpson Tours Boise State Research with NIH Director Francis Collins
Idaho Congressman Mike Simpson and National Institutes of Health (NIH) Director Dr. Francis Collins, toured Boise State University and discussed the important research being conducted on campus. Dr. Collins had the chance to meet with BSU faculty and students to discuss the future of biomedical research and the role NIH plays in helping institutions like Boise State advance lifesaving research. “I am grateful that Dr. Collins took time out of his busy schedule to visit Boise,” said Congressman Simpson. “I always tell people NIH is the nation’s best kept secret. Many people don’t realize that more than 80 percent of their funding goes to universities and private institutions which then transforms into lifesaving biomedical research. Boise State has great potential to expand its research footprint and I am thankful Dr. Collins took time to visit with students and faculty to better understand their talent and capabilities. It is truly an honor to have a highly respected voic
Simpson Cheers DOI Move to Improve Sage Grouse Management Plans
Idaho Congressman Mike Simpson released the following statement in response to the Department of the Interior’s announcement that they will take public comments in an effort to improve the current Bureau of Land Management (BLM) land use plans. “Today’s announcement from the Department of the Interior regarding BLM’s sage-grouse management plans is welcome news in Idaho,” said Congressman Simpson. “Secretary Zinke and his team should be applauded for taking this important step which is needed to restore the collaborative process between federal and state partners and to realign the federal plans in Idaho with that of the state’s. I look forward to working with Governor Otter to refocus these plans on their original intent - which is conserving species through common sense measures that work for Idaho’s landscape.”
House Passes Vital Fiscal Year 2018 Funding for Idaho
On Thursday, Idaho Congressman Mike Simpson supported passage of full year fiscal year 2018 funding. While a continuing resolution funds the government until December 2017, full year appropriations must still be passed for the remainder of the fiscal year. The bill was passed by a vote of 211-198 and includes legislation previously passed by the House including Chairman Simpson’s Energy and Water bill which has critical funding for Idaho National Laboratory. “Today’s legislation is an important step towards finishing fiscal year 2018 appropriations,” said Congressman Simpson. “This bill is an important marker for many Idaho priorities such as PILT, wildfire funding, and provisions that rein in burdensome regulations from the previous Administration. I look forward to working with my colleagues to see that these policies ultimately are signed into law so we can ensure federal agencies can fulfill their missions as quickly and efficiently as possible.” Interior and Envi
Simpson Statement on Death of Governor Cecil Andrus
Idaho Congressman Mike Simpson issued this statement on the news that former Governor and Secretary of the Interior Cecil Andrus died Thursday. “Idaho and our nation have lost a truly great statesman and conservationist today.  Kathy and I send our prayers and thoughts to his family for their loss. Governor Andrus will rightly be remembered as a legend in the conservation field.  It was fitting that he cut his political teeth protecting Castle Peak as I think they both have a lot in common.  They are giants in Idaho and icons to those who believe conservation is a necessity and not a luxury. We will truly miss Cece, but we will always be reminded of how great he was as we are surrounded by his legacy of conservation.” To view an Idaho Statesman video of Congressman Simpson honoring former Governor Cecil Andrus, please click here.
