The Legislature’s joint budget committee set another bare-bones budget this morning for the Division of Professional-Technical Education, coming in just below the governor’s recommendation at a 1.4 percent increase in state general tax funds. It includes small, specific expenditures for equipment replacement at the state’s three community colleges and at Eastern Idaho Technical College and Lewis-Clark State College, all recommended by the governor.
