Idaho politics reflect both tradition and change as the state hurtles toward a new century and new challenges. In this issue of FOCUS, we explore some of the issues that are shaping state government, from term limits and reapportionment to the growing influence of women lawmakers and the impact of the religious right. We also profile four politicos who have made their voices heard in the state and look at voter turnout and other state trends. Cover courtesy Hummel Architects.
