Otter: 'Focus On Legislative Priorities'

Idaho Gov. Butch Otter has sent out an opinion piece calling for “restoring focus on our legislative priorities,” which he identifies as “education, workforce development, economic opportunity, and responsibly fulfilling the other proper roles of government within the people’s means.” Writes Otter, “We probably won’t see the words added, Medicaid expanded or the minimum wage increased in 2014. But the fact that we’re having those discussions, debates and demonstrations says a lot about the health and vitality of our republic”/Betsy Russell, Eye on Boise. More here.

Question: How do you think Legislature has done so far this year?
