Nonini: ‘We weren’t elected to make easy decisions’

Rep. Bob Nonini, R-Coeur d'Alene, has opened debate on SB 1184, after more than an hour of bill-reading. “Today is a landmark day for the students of Idaho,” Nonini told the House. “We have to decide how to deal with the new normal in public education.” Nonini said there's not the money to keep things as they've been. “We've all had to learn to do more with less, to do things differently,” Nonini said, in areas from state agencies to people's household budgets. “Now we must do it to public education also.”

He said, “I know change is difficult. You all know change is difficult. But we weren't elected to make easy decisions.”
