Eye On Boise

A look ahead

Here’s a link to my Sunday story looking ahead to the legislative session. It describes how lawmakers who will be crammed into an old courthouse for their annual legislative session – while the state Capitol is closed for a two-year-plus renovation – are hoping for a short, businesslike session that will wrap up long before campaigning starts for this spring’s primary election, but working against those hopes is a plethora of pressing issues, from taxes to roads to water, and a clear lack of agreement between the Republican-dominated Legislature and Republican governor over how to address them. Here’s how Jim Weatherby, longtime Idaho political observer, describes what’s coming: “I think it’ll be a wild session, a difficult session.”
