Eye On Boise

One week in, and already all this…

Here’s a link to my full story in today’s Spokesman-Review about Friday’s developments at the Legislature, including the call for all state agencies to stop spending money except for operating costs “until further notice.” It’s not yet clear what will be affected, but possible targets include millions for replacement Idaho State Police patrol cars, major deferred maintenance projects at the University of Idaho that could get deferred again, and $100,000 for the Tax Commission to replace cars auditors are driving that have more than 100,000 miles on them apiece. And here’s a link to watch the first episode of Idaho Public TV’s “Idaho Reports,” on which Otter talks about the session and his initial clashes with lawmakers, and I join Jim Weatherby, Dan Popkey and host Thanh Tan to discuss the first week’s developments.
