BOISE, Idaho (AP) — A new proposal would make it easier for research centers and universities in Idaho to continue using fetal tissue for some research projects.

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Idaho House lawmakers showed their displeasure with Idaho Attorney General Lawrence Wasden by approving his office's budget on the narrowest funding vote he's seen since taking office. Republican Rep. Greg Chaney says he doesn't think Wasden did enough to defend the state in a recent lawsuit over anti-abortion laws. But Wasden says he aggressively defended the case and ultimately reached an agreement that stopped a judge from finding the laws unconstitutional.

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Legislation that would tweak Idaho's laws allowing families to cite religious reasons for medical decisions without fear of being charged with neglect or abuse is headed to the Idaho Senate.
