Here’s a sign that adjournment could still happen this week: The Senate and House education committees have scheduled a joint hearing for Wednesday morning at 8, on legislation – sponsored by Senate Chairman John Goedde and House Chairman Reed DeMordaunt – regarding the education budget, “Sections 25 and 26 pertaining to differential pay and technology pilot projects.” The hearing will be in the Lincoln Auditorium.
For now, there’s no bill number, just an RS number; Goedde said the panel can’t hear the bill until it’s printed, which likely would happen today; the agenda will be amended to add the bill number once that happens.
Kevin Richert of Idaho Education News reports that the Senate State Affairs Committee is likely to introduce and print the bill today; you can read his full post here.
