Session gears up: Teacher collective bargaining bills, gov’s insurance exchange bill in works

Things are gearing up, as the Legislature heads into the fourth week of its session. This afternoon, the Senate Education Committee is scheduled consider four bills from the Idaho School Boards Association to limit teachers’ collective bargaining rights, some of them restoring changes that voters rejected in Proposition 1 in the November election. Tomorrow, Gov. Butch Otter’s health insurance exchange legislation is scheduled to be introduced in the Senate Commerce Committee. On Wednesday, an Office of Performance Evaluations report on state employee  compensation and turnover is due out at 4:30 p.m. And on Friday morning, the House and Senate education committees will hold a “listening session” to hear from the public in the Capitol Auditorium.
