Public School Budgets And Redistricting In The Idaho Legislature

Feb 8, 2019

It’s the end of the fifth week of the Idaho Legislature. That means lawmakers are almost halfway toward going home.

Two issues popped up this week, involving the public school budget and Idaho’s Redistricting Commission. A plan to change how the commission works, that came up in last year’s session, is back this year. It’s the same plan the GOP looked at at their State Party Convention.

Boise State Political Science Professor Gary Moncrief gives Samantha Wright the details.
