Special guest this week on the True Idaho News podcast is Fred Birnbaum, legislative director for the Idaho Freedom Foundation. From a fiscally conservative position, Birnbaum said the legislative session that just ended was “the worst” he’s attended in the past eight years – and he explains why.
Also, Birnbaum talked about legislation that passed the House with veto-proof votes but got stuck in drawers in the Senate. Most alarming was Chuck Winder (Senate President Pro Tem) holding back legislation that would have kept pornography for kids out of libraries and a bill that would have prevented genital mutilation of underaged kids.
Another topic is school choice and why competition in the school system is better than just throwing money at the education industry.

There was much more to discuss, so Birnbaum will be back again soon to continue the conversation.
