The week that was…

The 8th week of this year's legislative session was an eventful one, though the process of setting the state budget remained at a standstill as the state sorted through the impact of the federal economic stimulus legislation. Here's a look at the week in photos, and here's a link to this week's Idaho Reports program on Idaho Public TV, on which I joined BSU political scientist emeritus Jim Weatherby, Idaho's  chief economist Mike Ferguson, Senate Minority Leader Kate Kelly, House Speaker Lawerence Denney, and host Thanh Tan to discuss the week's developments, from day care licensing legislation to unemployment and transportation funding. Within the first two minutes of the show, you'll see and hear Gov. Butch Otter's wolf howl, as he reacted to the news of the de-listing of wolves in Idaho. In addition to this week's program, you can watch the "After the Show" discussion on the same site, which ranged from quagga mussels to the economy.
