‘12 Priorities: Education, Jobs — Otter

With the state facing a budget surplus for the first time since the recession hit, Gov. Butch Otter says he wants to see “an Idaho focused not on scarcity or what we lack, but on a more prosperous and hopeful future for all of us.” He said, “It's with that Idaho in mind that I set my top two budget and policy priorities for 2012 and this legislative session. And the reality is, those two priorities are inseparable - jobs and education. Almost everything we do this year will have an impact on those two priorities”/Betsy Russell, Eye On Boise. More here.
