Kootenai County-Wide Meetings
Week of 2/1

A weekly snapshot of meetings throughout the county that could affect our daily lives. These include city council, county commissioner, and school board meetings, as well as any non-partisan, elected-position meetings that the public should be following. Any agenda topics called out are the ones I believe to be hot topics and could have a long-lasting effect on our community. If there is no agenda listed, it's most likely because it's farther out than the 24 hours advance notice they are required to give. I try to capture as many meetings as possible, but if you see something glaringly absent, please let me know.

The purpose of this mail is to give you a head's up about the meetings happening each week and give you an opportunity to attend in person. If you can't attend in person, most of the time the meetings will be available to view live online or after the fact, so that you may still feel up to date on the topics at hand. Starting to attend meetings, commenting on livestream threads, and emailing your representatives thoughts about the subjects they covered are all ways you can get involved in the local political process. Thanks!

Also, if you're watching what's happening in the State Legislature, here's the agenda for the standing committees today. There's A TON of meetings happening on Mondays, and my little ole' graphic doesn't have enough room for everything, so if you find a committee you have a particular interest in I highly recommend you check out the full agenda for the House here, and the Senate here.

One last thing, the House Education Committee will be listening to a presentation about Governor Little's 2020 Supplemental Appropriations and Building Idaho’s Future Initiative at 8:00am PST. This is the "initiative" that Little is proposing for using that $600M surplus budget due to getting so much federal funding for Cov-19. No one who is a fan of the conservative agenda likes anything having to do with Little's plan, and having a surplus due to receiving federal funding makes the Governor not a favorite person. Representative Heather Scott of District 1 made that fact abundantly clear on Friday when a director presented the Building Idaho's Future Initiative to the House State Affairs Committee and she basically ripped him a new one. He was stuttering through her questions and couldn't answer anything directly, and it was really fun to watch. I highly recommend it on the Idaho Freedom Foundation's YouTube page here.
If you have any questions about the status of any bills going through the legislature or have any questions about the process of bills in the legislature, feel free to email at and I'll be happy to answer any questions or point you in the right direction. Also, if you want a daily legislature head's up, make sure you join my Kootenai County Spectator group where we talk about the legislature, county and city politics, or anything else we want without having to worry about being judged.

In the meantime, I hope you guys have a great week and I'll see you around at the meetings!
