About the Event
Idaho's Republican-dominated Legislature took on property taxes, "critical race theory," education funding, public health, the separation of powers and much, much more this winter and spring. An unplanned but unsurprising two-week break to stifle a COVID outbreak in the Statehouse helped turn this into the longest session in Idaho history, and it was also one of the most controversial sessions in recent memory.
What actually happened, what impacts on Idaho life can we expect, and what are the political ramifications of it all? Our panel of reporters and editorial writers will offer their insights and expertise in our annual post-legislative discussion.
