Idaho Matters Reporter Roundtable: March 19, 2021

Roam Yocham
Boise State Public Radio

The Idaho Legislature abruptly recessed the 2021 session Friday morning due to an outbreak of COVID-19 among lawmakers, putting their work on pause until April 6. So where does this leave the bills that have been making their way through committees over the last couple of months? And will the outbreak of the virus spur changes in protocols at the statehouse? The Idaho Matters Reporter Roundtable tackles these questions and more. 

Our journalist panel today: 

Samantha Wright is a news reporter and producer for Idaho Matters.
