BOISE, Idaho — Reclaim Idaho, the local grassroots movement that put Medicaid Expansion on the November 2018 ballot, is kicking off its "20 Days of Action" statewide tour.

The tour focuses on Reclaim Idaho's new "Invest in Idaho" initiative. The initiative would invest $170 million in K-12 education across Idaho. Additionally, it would restore Idaho's corporate tax rate to 8%, and increase the marginal tax rate on those making $250,000 per year.

Details of the initiative include new revenue being deposited in a "Quality Education Fund," a fund that will be distributed on a per-student basis to school districts in Idaho in correspondence with the number of students attending a school district, but without any bias towards property values.
