AAA Rips Try To Cut Driver’s Ed Funds

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/Betsy Russell, Eye On Boise. More here. And: Idaho Reporter's story here.

Question: Should the Idaho Legislature pass more of the costs for driver's education onto Idaho families?
