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 Reflects on Congress’ Duty to Veterans
As Veterans Day approaches, Congressman Simpson reflects on the exceptional commitment to service demonstrated by veterans and active members of the military every day.  “This Veterans Day, we honor and thank our nation’s veterans and their families for the sacrifices they have made to keep us safe.  These heroes have dedicated their lives to protecting our American way of life, and it is because they serve that we may live freely and without fear,” said Simpson.  “I consider it one of my greatest honors and responsibilities to give back to these citizens who have given so much of themselves.  For this reason, I am proud to have joined with my colleagues in Congress in sending more than half a dozen veterans related bills to the President’s desk for signature during the 115th Congress, and to have supported many more on the floor of the House of Representatives throughout my career.  From H.R. 3218, the Harry W. Colmery Veterans Educational Assistance
Congressman Simpson Statement on Passing of Orval Hansen
Idaho Congressman Mike Simpson issued the following on the news that former Congressman Orval Hansen passed away on Thursday evening. “Kathy and I are saddened to hear of the passing of Congressman Hansen,” said Simpson. “He saw the potential that existed in our state for world class nuclear energy research and because of that vision, Idaho National Laboratory is a respected leader in energy research.  We are greatly indebted to Congressman Hansen for his service to Idaho and our nation.”
Simpson Votes for Lower Taxes
Idaho Congressman Mike Simpson praised the passage of H.R. 1, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act today in the House of Representatives.  H.R. 1 is the first comprehensive tax reform legislation to pass the House since 1986.  “Since coming to Congress, I’ve talked to farmers, ranchers and businesses throughout Idaho and I consistently hear about the burden that our overly complex, outdated, and unfair tax code puts on families and small businesses,” said Simpson.  “This bill will relieve much of that burden and allow more people to see a greater share of their paychecks in their wallet.  This will empower families in Idaho to make the decisions that they believe are best for their family, as opposed to sending their hard earned money to Washington.” H.R. 1 will lower tax rates on individuals and businesses of all sizes.  It will nearly double the standard deduction, so the first $12,000 earned by an individual and $24,000 earned by a married couple is c
Simpson Praises Defense Bill Supporting our Troops and Big Wins for Idaho
The House of Representatives today passed the conference report to H.R. 2810, the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2018.  Idaho Congressman Mike Simpson supported this legislation which fulfills Congress’ constitutional responsibility to provide for the common defense in addition to authorizing many important programs that support our military, including a pay increase and benefits to military members and their families. “The overwhelmingly support of the conference report to the NDAA by the House of Representatives sends a strong signal of support to our troops,” said Simpson.  “It is imperative that our military has the necessary tools to protect us from ever-changing threats.” The conference report also includes important Idaho priorities such as language that streamlines the conveyance of an unused Air Force-owned rail spur near the Mountain Home Air Force Base (MHAFB) to the City of Mountain Home.  The city plans to leverage
