EAST IDAHO NEWSMAKERS: Should EITC become a community college?
Published at | Updated at
In this edition of East Idaho Newsmakers, we tackle the issue of a potential community college in Idaho Falls.
On Tuesday, May 16, Bonneville County voters will head to the polls and decide if Eastern Idaho Technical College should be turned into a community college called the College of Eastern Idaho. A super majority vote (66%) is needed for the change to happen.
Nate Eaton invited Steve Taggart, an Idaho Falls attorney who supports the community college, and Larry Lyon, a former Idaho Falls city councilman who opposed the plan, to discuss the issue.
Each were given two minutes for an opening and closing statement. They were asked five questions and given two minutes to respond to each question.
Watch the video above to see the entire conversation.
