Idaho lawmakers will be back at the Capitol this week as new legislator orientation gets underway and for the organizational session (that’s when legislators vote on party leadership).

We know it’s a month before the 2013 legislative session officially kicks off, but we  wanted to introduce you to some lawmakers via Twitter.

We’ve compiled a list of 68 current, former and newly elected lawmakers who are on Twitter.  They don’t all tweet regularly, but here’s a list of handles and Twitter bios from some of the lawmakers who use it often:

Our list also includes Idaho’s governor, U.S. Senators and Congressmen, and some cabinet level officials.

We’re confident our list doesn’t include all tweeting Idaho policymakers. So if you think someone should be added to the list (and maybe that means you), send us their handle!

@StateImpactID reporters @EmilieRSaunders and @MollyMessick will use the hashtags #idpol for policy-related news, and #idleg for all legislative news.  Follow along and join the conversation!
