Idaho Representative Paul Amador Reviews His First Session

In December, we went to Coeur d’Alene, Idaho to talk with newly-elected state Republican Representative Paul Amador. He was anticipating his first session as an elected official in Boise. He’d been sworn in but the session hadn’t yet begun. Now, with his first go-round in the books, we asked him if he had been well prepared, about the state's educational system, the bills he introduced (one might get your attention) and his thoughts about the legislature's decision to repeal the state grocery tax (vetoed by Governor Otter).
