The Idaho House Judiciary, Rules and Administration Committee voted Wednesday to advance legislation implementing new rules for body camera retention policies and revising the penalties for driving without privileges.

BOISE, Idaho (AP) - A sweeping $200 million tax cut plan faces just one more hurdle before it can land on Gov. C.L. "Butch" Otter's desk. A Senate committee narrowly voted to send the tax relief package to the Idaho Senate. The plan would align Idaho's income tax code to recent federal changes, which means taxpayers would pay roughly $100 million more next year. In order to offset that increase, the measure seeks to reduce all seven of Idaho's brackets for personal income tax rates.

BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Idaho lawmakers have advanced legislation that would change how the state pays for the collection of evidence in sexual assault investigations. Currently, state law dictates sexual assault victim's health insurance must first be billed for a rape kit _ only after does the state pick up any of the remaining costs.

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - A proposal to collect a fee at Yellowstone National Park to fund wildlife conservation efforts in the states surrounding the park is advancing through the Wyoming Legislature.
