Fiscal 2012 Preview

Governor Butch Otter declares the upcoming legislative session will be "one of the toughest sessions we've ever seen." Why? The budget. Even Governor Otter says legislators will have to choose between raising taxes or cutting public schools, health services, and other state services even more than they had been previously.

On this edition of Dialogue, host Joan Cartan-Hansen previews the budget debate ahead with key legislators. Her guests include House Revenue and Taxation Committee chair Rep. Dennis Lake (R-Blackfoot) and State Senator Nicole LeFavour (D-Boise).
