Idaho Lt. Governor Responds to Misinformation Regarding Her Budget
BOISE, Idaho — The media continues to manufacture controversy where none exists. The Lt. Governor’s office budget is balanced. Our office had some unanticipated legal expenses due to the Idaho Press Club suing us because of our efforts to prevent conservative Idahoans and their children from being doxed by the media.
Our office has made the necessary cuts and adjustments to cover those costs, and Idaho taxpayers will not need to provide any additional funding for this office.
In previous years, our office has actually returned a portion of its budget to the taxpayers due to the increased efficiencies we have implemented.
“In a year when Gov. Little approved a budget increasing state spending by more than 20%, I remain a committed advocate of reducing the size and scope of government, consistent with our shared conservative values,” McGeachin said.
