The historic JFAC hearing at the Idaho Statehouse is about 10 minutes from getting under way. There's a really big crowd here, with every seat filled and people standing against the walls. At least one overflow room has opened up, too. Not everyone will get to testify, but there's talk that the hearing may go past 11 a.m., when it was officially set to end.
Thanks to all the IEA members and friends who are here this morning! If you couldn't make it, we'll be posting excerpts from testimony here throughout the morning.You can also listen and watch online at the Legislature Live site. Use the “auditorium” link.
