Jan 18, 2019

We're back!

After two weeks into the session, lawmakers are getting their feet under them at the Idaho Legislature.  

And for about two dozen of them who are brand new to the office, that means figuring out everything from their new email system to where the bathrooms are.

This week we visit a freshman lawmaker in her new job.

And Samantha Wright asks Boise State Political Science Professor Gary Moncrief the question why do lawmakers want this job anyway?
