(BOISE, ID) – The Idaho Legislature has reached a compromise on next year’s education budget. The $1.3 billion measure passed on a 31-3 vote in the Senate and on a 51-12 vote in the House. The bill was narrowly defeated in the Senate last week amid concerns about merit pay and funding for technology. The final draft features new conditions for merit pay and a $3 million provision for pilot technology projects.
