Boise, Idaho – Governor Brad Little emphasized his push for greater investments in literacy, teachers, and Idaho’s public education system during his State of the State and Budget Address today.
“We have a constitutional and moral obligation to all our youngest citizens,” Governor Little said. “I subscribe to the view that it is better to prepare children today than to repair them later.”
Other highlights from the Governor’s speech include continued regulatory reform, grocery tax relief for Idaho families, responsible budgeting, investments in public safety and corrections, and making health care in Idaho more accessible and affordable for all Idahoans.
“I’m committed to working with the Legislature to invest in education, continue reducing regulatory burdens, and increase all Idahoans’ prosperity and quality of life. I want us to champion affordable health care, make Idaho safer, and promote healthy lands and waters. I want Idahoans to be confident in their state government,” Governor Little said.Read More
