Today, the Joint Finance-Appropriations Committee will set budgets including Medicaid and public schools. They make up the largest piece of Idaho's state budget, and debate has been building all session over the prospect of Idaho's first-ever cut in public school funding, which the joint committee could endorse this morning. For now, the committee members have gathered for their early-morning workshop in the 5th floor library of the Capitol Annex, to go over the complex motions they may consider in their 8 a.m. meeting today.
