Idaho Governor Says Lawmakers Will Revive Parts of Education Laws Voters Rejected
Idaho Governor Butch Otter spent Wednesday afternoon discussing the coming legislative session at a meeting of the Associated Taxpayers of Idaho. Otter told the crowd lawmakers would revisit the education laws voters rejected last month. That’s despite the fact that Propositions 1, 2, and 3 were defeated by wide margins.
“I do believe that we will see parts of Proposition 1, the management plan, proposition 2, the pay for performance, and proposition 3, the high tech,” Otter said. “I think you’ll see parts and pieces of all of those come back at us.”
Otter said it was clear that voters opposed the laws as a whole but says there are parts people do like. He says a survey conducted after the election proves that. The survey has not been released to the public. Otter says he will assemble a diverse group of education stakeholders to discuss how to proceed.
