After an hour and a half, the House debate on SB 1254, the guns on campus bill, has wrapped up, and Reps. Judy Boyle, R-Midvale, and Christy Perry, R-Nampa, are giving their closing debate. “The authority surrounding the 2nd Amendment has always resided within the Idaho Legislature,” Perry told the House. “Agency heads are not elected - they do not have the same accountability. … Handing the authority to the multiple boards of trustees has not worked well for Idaho citizens. … Send it back to the Legislature where it actually belongs.” The vote is up next.
