After 95 days of wrangling, infighting and lawmaking, Idaho’s 2019 legislative session wrapped up last week.

Our theme this week is catfights and civility (or the lack thereof).

“It’s been a difficult session,” says Boise State political science professor Gary Moncrief.

We also take a look at why things didn’t get done in the legislature this year, why non-lawmakers were so frustrated, and we answer a listener question.

Join us as Samantha Wright and Gary Moncrief say goodbye to “Legislative Breakdown” for the year.

As Senior Producer of our live daily talk show Idaho Matters, I’m able to indulge my love of storytelling and share all kinds of information (I was probably a Town Crier in a past life!). My career has allowed me to learn something new everyday and to share that knowledge with all my friends on the radio.
