BOISE — The Idaho House voted 38-30 Tuesday in favor of SB 1193, the budget bill that includes Gov. Brad Little’s proposed $7 million boost to the state’s Opportunity Scholarships next year, and the bill now heads to the governor’s desk.

It was a surprisingly close vote in the GOP-dominated chamber for the Republican governor’s signature proposal for higher education next year.
