Lawmakers to lunch on prison food

When the Joint Finance-Appropriations Committee comes to town next week for a two-day interim meeting, it’ll spend part of the two days touring various operations where state money is spent, from the Idaho History Center’s archives to a Meridian elementary school to several area state prisons. While deliberating at the state capitol the first day, next Thursday, the budget-writing committee will have a catered lunch, but the next day, it’s prison food. Lunchtime that day will fall as the lawmakers tour the Idaho Correctional Center south of Boise, so they’ll lunch there.
