In the continued debate over three education reform referendums on Tuesday's ballot, political groups and private donors have contributed large amounts of money to both sides.
But one group, Education Voters of Idaho, has been fighting to keep its donor list secret. That could change today, following a court order.
Secretary of State Ben Ysursa sued to enforce the disclosure requirements of the state's Sunshine Law, which requires groups to reveal the source of funds used in campaigns.
EVI contributed funds to a statewide TV ad campaign in support of Propositions 1, 2 and 3, which would uphold a series of education reforms implemented during the last legislative session.
On Tuesday, 4th District Judge Mike Wetherell ordered the group to disclose its sources of funding by 3 p.m. today.
