A new bill introduced Monday morning in the Idaho Legislature would prohibit the use of student IDs as an acceptable form of identification for voting in Idaho elections, and it would remove a voter’s ability to sign an affidavit to prove their identity to vote.

First-year Rep. Tina Lambert, R-Caldwell, is sponsoring the new three-page bill. Without giving any specific examples of the practice, Lambert said she is worried about students being able to commit voter fraud with their student IDs.

“My constituents are concerned that students, maybe from a state like Washington or Oregon where they vote by mail, may come over here with their student ID and vote in person and then fill out their ballot in another state, thereby voting twice,” Lambert told the House State Affairs Committee on Monday.

Several conservatives wanted to zero out state funding for social justice positions and public radio. Democrats made a failed push to add some money to help four-year schools settle into newly built facilities. One Democrat suggested a big-money push designed to curb tuition costs.

Thursday’s bottom line: JFAC approved providing $353.9 million of taxpayer money to the four-year schools: Boise State University, the University of Idaho, Idaho State University and Lewis-Clark State College. That represents a 4.7% increase. (It also doesn’t include the $324.6 million the schools receive from other sources, particularly student tuition and fees.)

The budget bill, which now must pass the House and Senate, leaves a couple of major unanswered questions. The budget could still defund 56 diversity, equity and inclusion positions on the four-year campuses. And it might or might not be enough to head off a tuition increase, after three years of freezes.
