Legislative Update: Will Lawmakers Change Idaho's Primary?

Jan 20, 2017

As the Idaho Legislature wraps up its second week, lawmakers have introduced around 30 bills so far.

Boise State University Political Science Professor Gary Moncrief says that’s a little below normal, but we’ll see a lot more bills next week.

Right now, lawmakers are looking at a change to the Primary Election system in Idaho. They also want to make sure liquor licenses get used for selling booze instead of as investments. And Democrats had a suggestion for getting more teachers into rural schools.

During this edition of our 2017 Weekly Legislative Update, Moncrief says those were just a few of the bills that caught his eye.
