House debating new charter school cap-lifting bill that just was introduced today

The House is debating HB 353, the newly introduced bill to lift the cap on creation of new charter schools. Rep. Bill Killen, D-Boise, asked why the bill's fiscal note showed no impact on the state's general fund, and questioned why more charter schools wouldn't cost more. Rep. Cliff Bayer, R-Boise, the bill's sponsor, said, "There is no evidence as to what the growth would be."
