He tried everything

Sen. Brent Hill, R-Rexburg, had plenty of arguments to offer in favor of his bill to ban restaurant smoking during a passionate debate that ran for three hours in the Senate on Friday. Here's one that got a chuckle from other senators: Hill brandished a report, and said, "It links second-hand tobacco smoke with male sexual impotence. Now if that doesn't get you to vote for this bill, I don't know what will."

In the end, Hill's legislation, SB 1283, passed the Senate on a 22-13 vote, though most North Idaho senators voted against it.
