BOISE, Idaho — Starting this week, Reclaim Idaho will have 48 more days to collect signatures for a ballot initiative on education. Invest in Idaho Education would generate up to $200 million per year for K-22 public schools with no additional property taxes and no additional taxes for anyone making less than $250 thousand per year.

Reclaim Idaho started gathering signatures in 2019 but had to shut down operations in March because of COVID-19. By that point, the group had around 33,000 signatures.

Reclaim Idaho filed a lawsuit seeking to extend the time to gather more signatures while also providing an online option, which will open up on July 9.
