Episode 150: Education budgets receive widespread support

Welcome to episode 150 of the Extra Credit podcast.

This week, the Joint Finance-Appropriations Committee wrote and passed the seven public school budgets with unanimous support. The budget bills still need to pass the full House and Senate, but they have some serious momentum behind them thank to JFAC’s support.

Plus, get caught up on this week’s other legislative stories, including a closer look at Gov. Brad Little’s literacy initiative and the rejection of a bill to launch a state funded early childhood education program in Idaho.

Be sure to check back next week for another new episode of Extra Credit.
