Gov: Phase Out Deaf Agency

Governor Butch Otter wants to cut fuding for the Idaho Council for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing by 2014. He proposed the change during his State of the State address last week. The Council's current budget is $179,000, slashed from $279,500 in fiscal 2008. The governor's office says it hopes to find funding for the agency from other places besides the state.
