On tonight’s “Idaho Reports,” I join Jim Weatherby, Bill Dentzer, and co-hosts Aaron Kunz and Melissa Davlin to discuss the events of the sixth week of the legislative session, from taxes to budgets to former Gov. Phil Batt’s ground-breaking speech to Canyon County Republicans. Also, Bill Roberts joins the pundit panel for a discussion of school funding and the Idaho Education Network, and the show takes a deep look into the Idaho Education Network, including its history, with interviews with Sens. Dean Cameron, Bob Nonini and Shawn Keough, former state schools Superintendent Tom Luna and former Senate Education Chairman John Goedde. 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.
