Idaho state agencies outline plans for budget cuts - Betsy Z. Russell, Idaho Press

Gov. Little has characterized the cuts as a “spending reset,” not a budget holdback. After Gov. Brad Little ordered Idaho state agencies — other than K-12 public schools — to outline plans to cut 1% from their current year’s general-fund budgets and 2% next year, agencies have submitted their plans. The state Board of Education, for example, proposed reducing research grants to universities next year by $83,160 as part of its plans to meet its 2% base reduction.
