Zero funding for Rural Partnership

The Idaho Rural Partnership will be zero-funded next year, under a budget approved in the Joint Finance-Appropriations Committee this morning for the state Department of Agriculture. Several committee members objected to the move, but supporters of the budget motion said the partnership’s executive director is leaving, and their idea was to zero-fund the program for now, but re-fund it in the future when the director is replaced.
