Joe B. McNeal, Idaho Human Rights commissioner, addresses senators at a confirmation hearing for his reappointment to the commission; he’s served since July. McNeal said Idaho’s image would be in jeopardy if the state were to lose the Human Rights Commission; Gov. Butch Otter this year proposed phasing out its state funding over the next four years. The commission is exploring moving into the state Department of Labor to tap its funds instead.
