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 Secures Idaho Wins in Security Package
Idaho Congressman Mike Simpson today praised the passage of H.R. 3219, the Make America Secure Appropriations Act, 2018.  The Make America Secure Appropriations Act includes four individual appropriations bills - Defense, Energy and Water, Legislative Branch, and Military Construction/Veterans Affairs, as well as fully funding the President’s request for the border wall – for Fiscal Year (FY) 2018. H.R. 3218 is a national security appropriations bill which prioritizes funds for our troops, veterans and their families, U.S. Capitol Police, securing the border, nuclear security, and our nation’s waterways infrastructure.  Simpson is Chairman of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Energy and Water Development, and had the lead role in deciding funding for all Department of Energy programs. Several important provisions for Idaho were incorporated in the package, including the following: Energy and Water “The FY18 Energy and Water bill provides comprehensi
Simpson Stands Up for Critical Idaho Provisions
Idaho Congressman Mike Simpson supported passage of the fiscal year 2018 House Interior and Environment Appropriations bill, which contains many important provisions to Idaho. Congressman Simpson has continually advocated for essential funding for Payment in Lieu of Taxes (PILT) and wildfire suppression and prevention, which are included in this year’s bill. “The Interior Appropriations bill is arguably the most important piece of legislation for the western United States,” said Congressman Simpson.  “I am pleased this bill addresses the federal government’s responsibility to public lands counties by funding PILT. This is how many counties pay for essential services such as roads and schools. Until we find a much needed long term solution to PILT, I will continue to ensure these payments are fully funded and arrive on time.” The Interior bill also includes a number of priorities championed by Simpson that benefit Idaho, including: Full funding for wildfire
Simpson Applauds Secretary Zinke for Craters of the Moon Decision
Idaho Congressman applauds U.S. Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke for his announcement today that Craters of the Moon National Monument is no longer under review. Further, the Secretary will recommend that no modifications should be made to the monument. “I applaud Secretary Zinke for honoring the local consensus Idahoans have created with Craters of the Moon,” said Congressman Simpson. “I worked with a diverse group of stakeholders over ten years ago to ensure Craters reflects Idaho values and can be enjoyed by outdoor enthusiasts. I know Secretary Zinke shares these values and I thank him for his leadership.” In a press release issued by Secretary Zinke he said, “As a former geologist, I realize Craters of the Moon is a living timeline of the geologic history of our land on the Great Rift. Whether it’s hiking up the alien-like lava flows along the Spatter Cones, or just driving through the scenic loop, there’s a lot to see and learn at this historic location.
Simpson Votes for Defense Bill that Supports our Troops and Includes Big Wins for Idaho
Idaho Congressman Mike Simpson praised passage of H.R. 2810, the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2018.  This bill fulfills the constitutional responsibility of Congress to provide for the common defense by funding the Department of Defense, and authorizes many important programs that support our military, including a pay increase and benefits to military members and their families. “I am thrilled to see this bill provide our service members with the necessary tools and support they need to keep up safe at home and abroad,” said Simpson.  “With ever-changing threats, we must ensure that our military can protect us from those that wish to do us harm.” The NDAA contained many important priorities for Idaho including an amendment offered by Congressman Simpson that streamlines the conveyance of an unused Air Force-owned rail spur near the Mountain Home Air Force Base (AFB) to the City of Mountain Home.  This amendment was developed in
