NIPAC’s mission is to help rational, dedicated, problem solving people get elected to public office. We are a conservative, traditional values group. Our motto is “Preserving Individual Freedom, Promoting Individual Responsibility”.
NIPAC was formed to recruit and support candidates who are committed to fiscal responsibility, limited government and free markets. We look for candidates who will apply these principles to bring solutions to state and local problems as well as work cooperatively with other policy makers. NIPAC was formed to offer an alternative viewpoint to those who ridicule and ostracize politicians and candidates who do not agree 100% of the time with the Idaho Republican Party platform. Seldom does anyone agree with anything that requires 100% allegiance! We look for honesty, intelligence, work ethic, sincerity and courage in the candidates we support instead of ideological purity. Our board is composed of a diverse group of conservatives who cooperate to support fiscally conservative officials. There will never be 100% agreement on every issue within our board or among public officials, but what excites us is that, as conservatives, we share more, not less, in common. We know our differences make us stronger if we work together and the candidates we support also share this philosophy.

Here’s How your North Idaho Legislators Voted: As conservatives, we know that government doesn’t create jobs, but it can create a favorable (or unfavorable) environment for businesses to grow and succeed.

Here’s How your North Idaho Legislators Voted: The issue of taking Federal Lands and transferring ownership to the states is one that certain politicians seem keen to capitalize on as a cure-all for various woes related to state sovereignty. However, history and reality are significant barriers to many of the ideas related to such[…]
Everyone has been touched, in one way or another, by suicide. This is a health issue in Idaho, a mental health issue. Whether it is the immediate family, extended family or friends, co-workers or fellow students, the survivors experience a range of complex grief reactions including guilt, anger, abandonment, denial, helplessness and shock. We need[…]
March Madness isn’t just for college basketball! Activity in Boise has ramped up a bit, as the Legislature scurries to adjourn before Easter. While there still are numerous bills to receive a hearing, others await committee action or a vote from the House or Senate. This article will focus on legislation that has recently passed[…]
If you were injured in a car accident, would you ask the ambulance driver to take you to jail or to the hospital? Clearly, we would all choose medical attention. When mental illness is part of the crisis situation, however, the choices in Idaho haven’t been so clear-cut until recently. In 2014, Idaho established its[…]
Remember when we wrote checks and our driver’s license number was required to verify that you were really you? It was easy to recall, since it happened to be your Social Security number. It was a different time then and identity theft not so common. This column explores Idaho’s recent legislative responses concerning the federal[…]
If you’re like me and had the recent experience of renewing your vehicle registration, you saw a new line item of $21 to help pay for needed highway projects. HB 312 passed last year, so I knew this was coming. In addition to the registration increase, the state gas tax was increased 7 cents (from[…]
One of the most important issues our state legislators are asked to address every year is the education of our children. As conservatives, we believe this is as it should be. Education is better addressed by the state and by local school districts, rather than a far-off federal government. Local communities get to make sure[…]
