The 2015 Legislature will face a long list of simmering policy questions. Will legislators continue to grant more tax cuts-  possibly in both property and income taxes? But can they be so generous and also find the money necessary to implement the governor's education task force recommendations? Will the Idaho Education Network survive? Will this be the session that addresses growing transportation infrastructure needs? What impact will a new Superintendent of Public Instruction and Secretary of State have on legislative agendas? Will there be more heated budget debates with the loss of several centrist legislators by retirement or electoral defeat? And, as in almost every legislative session, what surprise issue will arise that could dominate the session?

A new lineup of panelist will provide insights into legislative attitudes and prospects for major pieces of legislation.

Panelists this year include: Melissa Davlin, producer/ Co-host of IPTV's "Idaho Reports" and former legislative reporter for the Twin Falls Times News, Betsy Russell, Boise bureau chief for The Spokesman-Review and "Eye on Boise", and Kevin Richert, Idaho Education News reporter and former editorial page editor of the Idaho Statesman. This panel will be moderated by Dr. Jim Weatherby.
