Reclaim Idaho files new K-12 funding initiative

The group behind the 2018 Medicaid expansion initiative is adopting a two-pronged political strategy.

Reclaim Idaho is planning to sue the state over a new state law that could make it much more difficult to get an initiative on a ballot. And if Reclaim prevails in court, the group will follow up with an initiative that would increase income taxes, generating more than $200 million per year for K-12 education.

Reclaim filed its ballot initiative language Wednesday.
