Here’s a link to the seventh week of Idaho’s legislative session in pictures, as a slide show. Let your cursor hover over the bottom part of the picture frame, and the captions will appear as the slide show plays. Tonight, on Idaho Public Television’s “Idaho Reports,” we’ll talk about the fight over a 1 percent COLA for state retirees, a rash of proposed new public records exemptions, urban renewal, the state budget and more. Guests joining host Thanh Tan include Reps. Ken Roberts, R-Donnelly, and James Ruchti, D-Pocatello; and Sens. Joe Stegner, R-Lewiston, and Elliot Werk, D-Boise. I join commentators including Jim Weatherby, Dan Popkey and Ben Botkin on the program, which airs tonight at 8, is rebroadcast Sunday at 11 a.m. Mountain time/10 a.m. Pacific time, and can be viewed online here. The show also is broadcast on the radio at 3 p.m. on Saturday on KISU-FM, and 10 a.m. Sunday on KBSX 91.5 FM.
