Sen. Sheryl Nuxoll, R-Cottonwood, has repaid the state around $900 for a letter she sent to constituents at the end of the 2012 legislative session. According to the Spokesman-Review, Senate Pro Tem Brent Hill, R-Rexburg, discussed the issue with Nuxoll and it was mutually agreed that she would repay the state.
Senators are permitted to send up to $2,000 in mailings on the taxpayers' dime, but it was who she sent it to that raised concern. The letter, which she said was informational, only went to Republicans.
Nuxoll explained that she had a limited amount she could send it out and since she is a Republican, she sent it to Republicans.
