Lots of legislative news today - despite the fact that it’s a state holiday, sanctioned by the Legislature, and most state offices are closed.

Here’s a link to my full story on the new performance audit of the Idaho Transportation Department, and here’s a link to my story from this morning about how Idaho’s prison population is down, defying a steep multi-year growth trend and signaling, state officials say, that the state’s new coordinated approach to substance abuse treatment is paying off.
