Mr. D: Idaho No Place To Raise Family

Mr. D: Idaho is becoming a place not to raise a family. Both of my kids are college grads as are their spouses. One is not buying a house in Idaho, but looking in Spokane where it’s possible to make a liveable wage and still enjoy the lake and mountains of Idaho without all of the negatives. The other is postponing pursuing their graduate degree because they are evaluating if it’s worth it to stay. Three of the four were born and raised here. Idaho is drowning under the one party syatem.

Question: Has Idaho become less family friendly as a result of the 2011 Legislature?
