Idaho Senator Jim Risch Answers Listener Questions

Senator James Risch

The government shutdown proved to be devastating for hundreds of thousands of federal employees and it cost the American economy billions of dollars. Congress and the president agreed to re-open for another three weeks while all sides continue to work out federal budgeting and agreeable attention to border security. Idaho Matters asks listener questions of Senator Jim Risch about the shutdown, border security, foreign relations and the investigations into Russian interference with the 2016 election.
