Click here to watch a slide show of the 7th week of this year’s legislative session in photos. It was an eventful and in many ways grueling week and made for lively discussion on this week’s “Idaho Reports” program on Idaho Public TV, on which I joined Gov. Butch Otter’s budget director, Wayne Hammon; former House Rev & Tax Chairwoman Dolores Crow; Idaho Statesman columnist Dan Popkey; BSU political scientist emeritus Jim Weatherby; and host Thanh Tan to discuss the week’s developments, from the federal stimulus to the Micron layoffs to the beer and wine tax. The program first aired Friday night at 8; it’ll air again on Sunday at 11:30 a.m. Mountain time, 10:30 a.m. Pacific time, or you can watch it here online, along with the even more lively online-only “After the Show” discussion.
