The Idaho Freedom Foundation (IFF) and the Center for Self-Government in the West recently released a new report outlining just how unprepared the state of Idaho is for future federal budget crises. What’s worse, many in the state simply cannot see where the federal money is going and the strings attached. According to analysis by State Budget Solutions last month, Idaho already relies on the federal government for 34.9% of its general revenue.

This current trend is unsustainable, but IFF outlines some key steps Idaho lawmakers can take to become prepared for future fiscal uncertainty. President Wayne Hoffman remarked, “We don’t know what the next federal budget crisis will be, but it’s obvious one is coming,” Hoffman said. “The least Idaho lawmakers can do right now is take steps to prepare. Lawmakers need to know the details of what’s in our state budget so they can measure the effectiveness and reliance on federal funding and act in their constituents’ best interests.”
