Video: This week’s ‘Idaho Reports’

From our partners at Idaho Public Television, here’s the video for this week’s edition of “Idaho Reports.”

This week, Betsy Russell of the Idaho Press interviews House Minority Leader Ilana Rubel, D-Boise. They talk about the sudden demise of a daycare bill on the House floor, and Rubel’s transition to the leader’s post.

Later, I join Russell and Keith Ridler of the Associated Press for the pundits segment, discussing the Statehouse standoff over academic standards, and the recent whistleblower claim filed against state superintendent Sherri Ybarra, among other topics.
