Welcome to the second edition of Idaho Politics Weekly, serving the Idaho public policy community. We’re pleased that Chuck Malloy, a long-time Idaho journalist, is now writing for us. We welcome his contributions.

As your one-stop source for political, government, and public policy news and information, we invite you to check headline links daily on our web site, www.idahopoliticsweekly.com. We’re linking to news stories on government and public policy topics from news sources across the state, and the links are updated each day. It’s an easy way to stay up to speed on what’s happening across Idaho. We also link to national stories.

On the web site, we’re also developing a comprehensive and detailed political calendar. The calendar can be viewed in a number of different ways. Check it out!

We’re pleased to continue to publish survey research conducted by long-time independent pollster Dan Jones & Associates. We’re also developing an Advisory Board to provide guidance and suggestions on articles and survey research topics.

Idaho Politics Weekly is presented by Zions Bank, and is delivered by email each Monday morning. As sponsor, Zions Bank is not endorsing or taking positions on public policy issues. Rather, the bank views this newsletter as an extension of its guiding principles to be involved in the community and provide needed services. Idaho Politics Weekly is not partisan or ideological and is not a traditional journalistic endeavor. It is intended to serve the public policy community with news and information. The publication also desires to partner with Idaho public policy organizations, providing a channel for them to deliver important information to the public policy community.
