Eye On Boise

Senate passes SB 1199, 31-3

There was no debate, and the Senate has voted 31-3 in favor of SB 1199, the new education bill regarding teacher merit bonuses and technology pilot project grants. Sen. Branden Durst, D-Boise, who asked for 60 seconds to explain his vote, noted the pending education stakeholders task force and interim legislative committee on education issues. “I’d rather sit back and see what the fruit of those processes are,” he said. The other two “no” votes came from Sens. Bob Nonini, R-Coeur d’Alene, and Steve Vick, R-Dalton Gardens. The bill now moves to the House side.
