‘Put kids first.’ We hear this term a lot, but many times, children are left out of the conversation when it comes to implementing legislation that impacts these very kids and their families. 

A new bipartisan nonprofit organization is aiming to change that.


The group, Idaho Children Are Primary, is made up of business leaders, educators, doctors and other child experts from both sides of the political aisle.


Together, they have the goal to make Idaho better for children.


Joining Idaho Matters today to talk more about the new organization are Idaho Children Are Primary board members Dr. John Rusche and Trent Clark.
