Item: ISP feeling budget pinch/Betsy Russell, Eye On Boise
More Info: The governor’s recommended budget for next year for ISP calls for an 8.2 percent cut in state general funds, and a 5.1 percent cut overall. However, it’s one of the few areas where the governor is calling for adding staff, with a proposal for three new positions in forensics. He’s also recommending most, though not all, of the requested funding to move the department into its newly constructed Region 1 office in Coeur d’Alene, which is expected to be completed in late June
Question: Overall, do you have a positive or negative impression of the Idaho State Police?
