The Idaho House passed a bill requiring high school students to pass a civics test as a graduation requirement. If it becomes law, passage of the test would be required beginning in the 2016-17 school year. The House passed the bill, 59-10. The bill already cleared the Senate 29-6 on March 9. It now heads to Gov. Butch Otter’s desk for final consideration.
