Idaho lawmakers wrap up 81-day legislative session

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Idaho lawmakers have wrapped up this year's legislative session that included passing the state's largest ever income tax cut of $600 million and one of the nation's most restrictive abortion bans.

But the Republican-dominated Legislature adjourned the 81-day session on Thursday without passing any meaningful property tax relief.

Other notable legislation that became law included a record 11%, $300 million increase for K-12 public schools, $325 million for water infrastructure and more than $800 million for transportation costs and deferred maintenance on state buildings.

The six-week abortion ban will be enforced through lawsuits to avoid constitutional court challenges.

Planned Parenthood has filed a lawsuit to block the law.
