On tonight's “Idaho Reports,” I join Jim Weatherby and host Greg Hahn to discuss the legislative developments of the week, from Sen. John McGee's abrupt resignation to legislative retirements to fees and tax breaks. The program also includes Hahn's interviews with Sen. Mitch Toryanski, R-Boise, and Rep. Phylis King, D-Boise, about ethics; with Reps. Marv Hagedorn, R-Meridian, and Shirley Ringo, D-Moscow, on the state budget and state employee pay; a report on state employee salary needs at the DEQ and ITD; an interview with new state Commerce Director Jeff Sayer; and more.
The show airs tonight at 8 p.m. on Idaho Public Television; it repeats Sunday at 11 a.m. Mountain time, 10 a.m. Pacific; and will be replayed on Boise State Public Radio on Sunday at 6 p.m. After it airs, “Idaho Reports” also can be viewed online at www.idahoptv.org/idreports/.
