The finish line is in sight for the Idaho Legislature. Lawmakers pushed through nearly 100 bills this week as they worked to wrap up and go home. They won’t officially end until next week, even though they’ve worked through the major issues of the 2018 session.

Boise State Political Science Professor Gary Moncrief tells Samantha Wright in some ways, it appeared to be a regular session, if you looked at the number of bills that were processed.

Gary and Samantha have a podcast called “Legislative Breakdown.” We pick apart the Idaho Legislature each week to find out how it affects YOU -- and in this episode we look at the Governor’s health care plan and how it died, again, this week. Find “Legislative Breakdown” every Friday in iTunes, in the NPR One app and here.
