Idaho Could Get $51 Million Under Jobs Bill
BOISE, Idaho (AP) - The state Department of Education says Idaho is expected to receive $51 million as part of a $10 billion job saving measure that has passed the U.S. House of Representatives.
The legislation is part of a larger, $26 billion jobs bill aimed at helping teachers and other public workers avoid layoffs. The bill now goes to President Barack Obama for his signature.
State education officials are still getting details on how the money will be spent or distributed.
