2011 Legislative Session
Boise--The 2011 legislature will have a very distinct challenge in developing a balanced budget. The Governor and most legislators have ruled out any consideration of a tax increase. With an anticipated budget shortfall that could top $300 million; that would mean more cuts to state agency budgets – including education. Sessions that have to tackle that difficult of a task tend to be longer sessions than normal.
