Some Idaho lawmakers are bent out of shape over Gov. Butch Otter’s plan to boost road spending but cut education spending.
Yesterday, Otter detailed his plans for spending more than $1.2 billion in federal economic stimulus money, which includes increasing taxes for roads, spending stimulus money for roads, and borrowing for roads- all while cutting education funding.
Here are the details. What's your take on this? Does Otter have the right idea to improve infrastructure, or is he putting too much into roads at the expense of education?
