An anti-vaccine mandate rally at the Idaho Capitol Thursday drew hundreds of supporters, including some nurses and other healthcare workers.

What's next at the state capitol as some lawmakers want to return to session and take up the issue of employer vaccine mandates? Some of those lawmakers could lose seats to new election maps — and we now know the first few names of the citizen group which will approve those maps. And: potential new developments in the Murgoitio Park saga in south Boise. We'll take the full hour to discuss the top regional news stories on Idaho Matters.
