Crane said any money for defending lawsuits would come from the state’s constitutional defense fund. Rep. Greg Lanting, R-Twin Falls, then asked Crane for an estimate of how much it would cost to defend the bill in court.

“I believe it to be constitutionally sound, and I think we are going to be just fine – so zero,” Crane told Lanting.

Often, it takes a week or more for a bill to be introduced, scheduled for a full public hearing and then sent back to the floor and taken up for a vote. However, Crane and other Republican legislators worked together to finish that entire process in just over 48 hours.

“If they don’t pass, we’ve just cut education by quite a bit,” said Rep. Greg Lanting, R-Twin Falls, who voted against the bare-bones public schools budget.
