Bill to cut state funding for driver’s ed draws fire from AAA of Idaho

The AAA of Idaho is decrying HB 314, which it describes as "last-minute legislation introduced just last Friday," that the motorists' group says would "double the cost for the ten thousand families who opt to send their teens to driver training through public schools." The bill emerged from the House Education Committee this morning on a 14-3 vote and headed for consideration in the full House; it's sponsored by Rep. Steven Thayn, R-Emmett. You can read the AAA's full statement here.
