Otter signs bill lifting charter school cap

Without comment, Gov. Butch Otter has signed HB 481, lifting all caps on creation of new charter schools in Idaho, into law. Currently, Idaho limits the creation of new charter schools to six per year and one per school district; both limits are removed under the bill, sponsored by Rep. Bob Nonini, R-Coeur d'Alene.
