Instead of taking additional federal money to cover the health insurance program for the poor, elderly and disabled, Otter wants to make changes to the system first. That includes focusing on prevention and outcomes rather than the existing system that he says concentrates too much on payments for services.
"My answer remains, not this year," Otter said.

Otter did say he wants to develop three regional behavioral health centers in Idaho Falls, Coeur d'Alene and Boise to help address mental health issues.

Otter outlined his plan in his annual State of the State speech and also lauded members of a task force that came up with recommendations in 2012 to boost education with the goal of 60 percent of adults between 25 and 34 having a college degree or professional certification by 2020. The figure is now about 35 percent, according to state statistics.
"I'm sure some will argue that the proposals I'm putting forward today are Nike More Uptempo Blue not bold enough, not front loaded enough or simply not enough," he said.

Interfaith Equality Coalition is stepping up as well to allow the governing member's of Idaho to see clearly that the bygone era of preventing equality because someone seems different is not acceptable. Equality and Justice for All Idahoan's ! This is a voting year it is time to stand up for what is right no one deserves second class citizen status ! Gov Butch Governor C. L. "Butch" Otter please awaken to the truth that you are here to govern for ALL the people not just those few your party aligns with. If they were, they would have left the profession long ago. Teaching is one of the most underpaid professions for the education/work required. Especially in Idaho. "Operating costs" (cost of living) has increased for everyone, teachers included. And when teachers have to provide basic supplies for their classrooms out of their own pockets, something is dreadfully wrong. Teachers have sustained numerous pay cuts or increased class sizes and work loads. Everyone understands belt tightening during tough times, but it should be restored as things improve. Teachers are a critical part of society and they should be paid as the professionals they are. Or the money can be used to restore cut subjects or additional classes to reduce class size, which DOES increase education. Teachers have been vilified for politics and a push toward privatization. And look how that's turned out for the prisons. When the main objective becomes profit, then education becomes secondary. Yes, education is expensive, but not as expensive as an ignorant or uneducated society. And no, I'm not a teacher. I am just someone who values education tremendously and has great respect and appreciation for those who attempt to teach.
