Nearly 180 Idaho city officials participated in the 2015 City Officials’ Day at the Capitol last Thursday (list of attendees). Almost all of the 105 members of the Idaho Legislature were in attendance, as well as all of Idaho’s constitutional officers and several state agency representatives.
The highlight of the morning legislative briefing was a legislative leadership panel moderated by Dr. Jim Weatherby, which included Speaker of the House Scott Bedke, Senate President Pro Tem Brent Hill, House Minority Leader John Rusche and Senate Minority Leader Michelle Stennett. The panelists provided great insight on several issues, including transportation funding, local option taxation, and the Rangen water call. At lunch city officials had an excellent opportunity to discuss issues with their legislators.
Thanks again for making this year’s City Officials’ Day at the Capitol a success!
