Eye On Boise

Getting results

Just before the House Revenue & Taxation Committee met on Thursday, a committee member, at the urging of her fellow lawmakers, straightened a painting of a historic downtown Boise scene that hangs on the hearing room wall.

“It needs to go a little bit down on the left,” another lawmaker directed.

Once the painting was straight, Chairman Dolores Crow, R-Nampa, declared, “Can’t say we didn’t accomplish something today.”

“Government in action,” commented Rep. Lenore Barrett, R-Challis.

Said Crow, “That’s probably the best thing that’s been done all week.”
