On tonight’s “Idaho Reports,” I join Jim Weatherby, Kimberlee Kruesi, and co-hosts Aaron Kunz and Melissa Davlin to discuss the events of the fourth week of the legislative session, from the Idaho Education Network to Medicaid expansion to abortion, guns and gambling. The show also includes Aaron and Melissa’s interview with House Speaker Scott Bedke; Melissa’s interview with lobbyists Dan Chadwick of the Idaho Association of Counties and Wayne Hoffman of the Idaho Freedom Foundation; and a report on the plight of rural communities that are losing population, including an on-scene report from North Idaho’s Silver Valley. The hour-long show airs at 8 tonight; after it airs, you can watch it here online any time. It also re-airs Sunday at 10:30 a.m. Mountain time, 9:30 Pacific.
