End of 2013 regular session
The Idaho Legislature adjourned its regular session sine die on April 4, 2013.
Before adjourning at 11:30 a.m., the Legislature finalized the $1.3 billion public education budget. It failed to pass by one vote at the end of March, with some lawmakers arguing that it codified the Students Come First laws rejected by voters last November.
The House also debated and passed a bill aimed at allowing school districts flexibility in adjusting teacher pay and contracts.
