Idaho 457 Deferred Compensation Plan, Boise, is adding the Columbia Overseas Value Institutional Fund to its investment options lineup.

The board at that meeting also approved the removal of the Templeton Foreign Fund from the lineup due to underperformance, the minutes show. That fund had $2 million in assets in the plan as of June 30.
