Idaho lawmakers have a pretty good gig going for them in terms of their compensation for a part-time gig. In fact, the current payout for the 2020 year is $18,415, plus health insurance and PERSI (Idaho’s pension system).
Last year, lawmakers were at their posts inside the State Capitol Building for just 74 days. That equates to $248.85 per day. Not bad huh? And last year went longer than most.
All signs are pointing to a very busy 2020 legislative session for education. Below are the emails for the House and Senate committee members.
Contact them often during the session, especially if troublesome bills emerge in their committees.
I know it’s been awhile since you thought about the Master Educator Premium program. In fact, if you’re like me, you probably would rather have a root canal than think about that catastrophic failure of the Idaho Legislature’s making ever again.
Unfortunately, I need you to think about it a little bit more. But, I promise I only need a a few minutes of your time. That’s because the Idaho Legislature is about to kick off, and the only way to change this program for the better is with your help.
