Blame it on North Idaho?

With lawmakers scrambling to wrap up their session by the end of this week, it was something of a surprise on Friday when the Senate, which has more than 100 bills left on its calendar, decided to quit shortly after lunchtime and head home for the weekend.

"We had a lot of senators, especially those going to North Idaho, who had purchased airplane tickets," said Senate President Pro-tem Robert Geddes, R-Soda Springs. "If they don't make that 3:30 flight, they have to hang around 'til 10."

Despite the early start to the weekend, Geddes said Monday, "I think we can finish this week."
