Eye On Boise

Those durn demanding kids, who knows what they’ll want next

Today’s Idaho State Journal had a story by reporter Dan Boyd on a talk by local legislators to the Chamber of Commerce there in Pocatello about their legislative priorities, and the lawmakers touched on the question of whether the state should create more need-based scholarships for college students. Newly, and narrowly, re-elected Rep. Ken Andrus, R-Lava Hot Springs, opposed the idea, saying he’d rather hold tuition steady than target aid at a select few. He didn’t stop there. As quoted in the Journal, here’s Rep. Andrus’ comment on the issue:

“I am not in favor of providing an education for everybody who wants one. When they get out of school, they’re going to want a job provided for them, too.”
