BOISE, Idaho (AP) — The Idaho House has approved a “fix it” bill that would restore more than $30 million in funding to Idaho public schools. The House voted unanimously Tuesday in favor of the legislation that aims to put back money that was lost when voters repealed the 2011 Students Come First laws last fall. Rejection of those laws translated to a midyear funding cut to schools at a time when districts were counting on that money to make ends meet this year.

Eagle Republican Rep. Reed DeMordaunt said the measure includes dollars to pay for new teachers who were hired at the start of the school year. The restored money will also be used to cover technology and professional development expenses. The proposal now goes to the Senate for consideration.
