The Idaho House of Representatives Friday approved the budget for the Idaho Department of Correction (IDOC) for the next fiscal year. IDOC would receive $150 million in state tax dollars for state prisons and other programs. The vote on the budget was 39-20. Most previous budget votes have had far fewer no votes.

Many Democrats voted against the corrections budget. "This budget appears to be a trainwreck ready to happen," said Rep. Shirley Ringo, D-Moscow. She serves on the Joint Finance-Appropriations Committee (JFAC), which set the IDOC budget. Read IdahoReporter.com's story on JFAC's budget for state prisons.

The corrections budget now heads to the Senate for approval. Read the text of the IDOC budget here.
