House passes employment supports bill, film tax incentive; takes up wolf bill…

With no debate, the House has unanimously endorsed restoring employment supports through Medicaid for people with developmental disabilities that fell victim to budget cuts in 2011; HB 476 passed on a 63-0 vote, and now moves to the Senate.

The House also passed legislation to extend Idaho’s tax incentive for film productions, though it’s still not funded; it otherwise would have expired in 2014. HB 498 passed on a 49-15 vote with no debate, and also heads to the Senate side.

Now the House is taking up the $2 million wolf control bill, HB 470.
