Solon Opposes Human Rights $$$ Cut

As JFAC set the budget for the state Department of Labor this morning, Sen. Nicole LeFavour, D-Boise, raised concerns about the continuing inclusion in that budget of a “general fund phase-out” for the Idaho Human Rights Commission, cutting state general funds to that agency by $156,600 next year for the third straight year; after four years, the commission would have no general funds. The money is being replaced with dedicated funds, including federal funds, from the Department of Labor/Betsy Russell, Eye On Boise. More here.

Question: Should the Human Rights Commission be funded by the state's general fund?
