First motion of six in public school budget clears JFAC, 16-4

The first motion of the six in the public school budget, for administration, has passed JFAC on a 16-4 vote, with just Sens. Dean Mortimer, Sheryl Nuxoll, Steve Vick and Cliff Bayer objecting. That’s one more vote than the original school budget, HB 323, got in the joint committee earlier before being defeated by one vote in the Senate; this time around, Sen. Steven Thayn, R-Emmett, voted in favor. “The motion is straightforward, and pretty close to the original motion,” said Rep. Jeff Thompson, R-Idaho Falls, who made the successful motion; it was seconded by Senate Finance Chairman Dean Cameron, R-Rupert.
