Idaho’s proposed $2 million wolf control fund won’t be getting $2 million next year, reports the Twin Falls Times-News’ Kimberlee Kruesi; with millions needed to shore up the Idaho Education Network in the face of missing federal funds, legislative budget writers instead are looking at an allocation of less than half that amount. “It will probably get less than $1 million or closer to the $400,000 that was requested last year,” JFAC Co-Chair Rep. Maxine Bell, R-Jerome, told Kruesi. “We have some flexibility when it comes to killing wolves. We don’t have flexibility with IEN.” You can read Kruesi’s full report here.
