News

2010

  • The head of the committee, Sen. Patti Anne Lodge, worked with the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare (DHW) to ban the use of paper, folders, and binders for panel members in reviewing rules and statutes. The change was meant to save more than $5,000. Committee members were still allowed to bring paper notebooks into meetings, but the department no longer provided documents of rules in paper form and instead distributed files through electronic format.[4]
