Much of our last month and a half has been consumed with following the developments in Idaho’s child support legislation controversy and covering the ins and outs of the fight surrounding the bill.
That fight came to an end this week. As you know, on Monday, the Idaho Legislature convened for eleven hours and eleven minutes to pass the amended bill with added due process and privacy protections. (Were those amendments were needed? It depends on who you ask.) The governor signed that bill on Tuesday. (And we at Idaho Reports can move on with our lives and find new topics over which obsess.)
When trying to put together a package that gave viewers an insight into Monday’s special session, we had to cut a lot of great footage. So if you’re a sucker for great legislative debate, here’s our extended segment.
As for us, we have one more show before this season wraps up and we begin to work on various Outdoor Idaho productions for the summer. But don’t worry — We’ll still be covering political news on this blog.
