The Blue Review, along with the Boise State School of Public Service and Department of Political Science invite you to the 2016 Idaho Filibuster Sessions, an informal, fortnightly meetup to discuss the latest happenings at the Idaho Legislature.
TBR Essays reflect a writers own views on contemporary topics.
We will hold the Filibuster sessions at St. Lawrence Gridiron, 705 W. Bannock St., just south of the Capitol, starting at 5:30 pm. The first session, this Weds., Jan. 20, will feature Boise State political scientists Justin Vaughn and Jaclyn Kettler.
Vaughn has studied political rhetoric, particularly in the presidency, and is prepared to discuss the language and policy ideas in Gov. C.L. “Butch” Otter’s recent State of the State address as well as other, early legislative session topics and provide context in light of national politics. Kettler is an expert in state politics, political parties, women and politics and campaign finance and may answer questions about legislating during a political season as well. This will be a very informal opportunity to discuss and debate the issues of the day.
The Sessions will continue on:
- Feb 3: Stephanie Witt and Uwe Reischl on health care and coverage (facebook)
- Feb 17
- Mar 2
- Mar 16
