Candidates spar over budget, ‘special interests’

There was a pretty heated back-and-forth between the two candidates when they were asked by reporter panelist Adam Cotterell of Boise State Public Radio what they would have done differently in this year’s cuts in school funding. Luna said, “I would have preferred that the Legislature would have followed the … budget that I proposed.” He said that “special interests” insisted on different approaches, including cuts in things like classroom supplies that he didn’t want to make. Olson responded that “those special interests” are the educators involved, and that they should have a part in the decisions.
