This week in the Idaho Legislature, lawmakers spent time on budgets and human trafficking bills, while LGBTQ supporters came to the capitol to advocate for an anti-discrimination bill.

Boise State Political Science Professor Gary Moncrief tells Samantha Wright that overall the action at the legislature has been slow, which isn’t unusual this early in the session.

Gary and Samantha have a podcast called “Legislative Breakdown.” They pick apart the Idaho Legislature to find out how it affects YOU -- and this week they talk to a brand new legislator who is learning the ropes at the statehouse.

My career has allowed me to learn something new everyday and to share that knowledge with all my friends on the radio.
