The view lawmakers saw as they left the Idaho Statehouse after the 2019 Legislative Session wrapped up.

The Idaho Legislature finally wrapped up and went home Thursday after one of the longest sessions in years.

At the end, the House and the Senate were at odds over several issues: legalizing hemp cultivation, new offices for the House and changes to the citizen initiative process.

Boise State Political Science Professor Gary Moncrief tells our Samantha Wright it’s finally over.

Gary and Samantha have a podcast called “Legislative Breakdown.” They pick apart the Idaho Legislature to find out how it affects YOU … and next week, they will break down the 2019 session.

Find “Legislative Breakdown” in the NPR One app.
