Legislative Breakdown

In this weekly podcast, we break down the Idaho Legislature so you don't have to. We dig into what's happening, drill down into the why and find out how it affects you.

The Legislature makes the laws, controls the money and creates the rules that govern life in Idaho. Each Friday, we ask these questions: What just happened? How does it affect your life?

We look behind the bill numbers and political rhetoric for the context in the 2018 legislative session.

Join Boise State Political Science Professor Gary Moncrief and Boise State Public Radio's Samantha Wright as they break down Idaho's Legislature.
