Idaho governor C.L. "Butch" Otter to remain focused on education in 2018

December 7, 2017

Gov. C.L. "Butch" Otter says once again he's committed to growing and improving education in Idaho as he prepares for the 2018 legislative session.

Otter briefly spoke about his agenda at the annual conference of Associated Taxpayers of Idaho -- a popular event attended by hundreds of lawmakers, lobbyists and business officials.

Otter said the key reason education remains a priority is because there are currently 24,000 jobs in Idaho that aren't filled largely due to a lack of education among the state's workforce.
