On tonight’s “Idaho Reports,” I join Jim Weatherby, Kevin Richert, and co-hosts Aaron Kunz and Melissa Davlin to discuss the events of the third week of the legislative session, from the education budget to “Add the Words.” The show also includes Aaron and Melissa’s interview with three university presidents – Chuck Staben of the University of Idaho, Bob Kustra of Boise State University and Arthur Vailas of Idaho State University; a discussion between Reps. Brent Crane, R-Nampa, and Melissa Wintrow, D-Boise, on the “Add the Words” bill; and Aaron and Melissa’s interview with Rep. Wendy Horman, R-Idaho Falls, and Sen. Steven Thayn, R-Emmett, on the education budget.

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.
