Citizens Alliance of Idaho believes knowing your rights is the first responsibility all Idaho citizens should master. What better way to have them at the ready than to carry a first-of-its-kind Idaho edition of the pocket Constitution?
This pocket-sized book contains Article I from the Idaho Constitution, known as The Declaration of Rights, and the entire United States Constitution which includes the Bill of Rights and all 27 Amendments.
While many of the Idaho Declaration of Rights are similar to the U.S. Bill of Rights, such as the right to bear arms, freedom of speech, and the right to freely worship God, there are many more rights that the drafters of Idaho’s Constitution wanted to make sure were in writing when preparing the state to eventually join the Union in 1890. After all, the 9th Amendment of the U.S. Bill of Rights states, “The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage other retained by the people.” In other words, just because there are 10 Rights numbered in the Bill of Rights, doesn’t mean those are the only rights the people have. So Idaho, like many other states, laid out a dozen or more rights that the people enjoy. However, once again, this doesn’t mean, our rights end here.
This unique booklet was designed, created, and printed in Idaho and is made available to Idaho citizens free of charge.
