Eye On Boise

Senate passes substance abuse, mental health budget, moves to adjourn for night

The Senate passed HB 338, the budget bill for substance abuse and mental health services, and now is moving to adjourn for the night. The bill passed over strong objections from Sen. Nicole LeFavour, D-Boise, who said cutting such services will mean more suicides. Both houses have been on bill-passing marathons today; each killed one and passed dozens.
