Idaho Lt. Gov. Brad Little said Idaho faces more tough budget choices but those decisions could benefit the state in the future. Little spoke at the Associated Taxpayers of Idaho (ATI) conference Wednesday, telling a crowd that included many policymakers that Idaho’s government is in better shape now than it was during the Depression of the 1930s and doesn’t have nearly the debt of California. Little also said Idaho faces a potentially ugly future of the federal government reducing spending that goes to state programs and services/Brad Iverson-Long, Idaho Reporter. More here.
Question: Is it a comfort to you that Idaho’s state spending is in far better shape than California’s?
