Senate Republicans finished up their closed-door caucus more than an hour ago, but they’re not back in session yet – they’re just milling around. “We’re waiting – we don’t have anything on our calendar except for one bill,” said Senate GOP Caucus Chair Brad Little, R-Emmett. The senators are waiting for the House to send them legislation to vote on – including the “Connecting Idaho” road funding bill also known as GARVEE. Little said the caucus focused on “where are we and are we going to get to go home today,” and the answer was: “We don’t know.”
