Eye On Boise

Public school budget hearing to start, after hazardous trip to Capitol for all…

As the 18thday of this year’s legislative session opens this morning, the roads in Boise have some of the worst travel conditions I’ve seen in my quarter-century-plus here. The ice was an inch thick at my house; several of my neighbors had collided at the bottom of our steep hill. The freeway is closed in both directions from Boise to Glenns Ferry. It’s a big day at the Legislature: The public school budget hearing is up, and state schools Superintendent Tom Luna was scheduled to start speaking at 8 a.m. JFAC Co-Chair Dean Cameron, R-Rupert, just made an announcement: He won’t be calling the meeting to order just yet. “The superintendent is on his way – he’s been on the road for over an hour,” Cameron said. So they’ll wait.

Just moments later, Luna arrived, only 5 minutes late.
