BOISE, Idaho (AP) — For the second time in nearly two decades, 31 members of Idaho's state lawmakers are women. Idaho voters picked the 31 female lawmakers to serve in legislative seats across the state during last week's Election Day. This means that women will make up 29.5 percent in the Idaho Legislature when it convenes in Boise in January. The last time more than 30 women served in the 105-member Statehouse was in 1994. The number has previously hovered around or below 29 women for years.
