Eye On Boise

Morty mucks around in the milfoil milieu

House Agriculture Chairwoman Rep. Frances Field, R-Grand View, charms those who attend her committee meetings with her courteous welcome and her friendly insistence that everyone stand and introduce themselves at the start of the meeting. On Wednesday, when she got to Rep. Eric Anderson, R-Priest Lake, who was at the committee to back a bill on his favorite topic this year, Eurasian water milfoil, Anderson quipped: “I’m Representative Morty Milfoil.” Anderson’s been talking milfoil this year to everyone in sight, including an array of legislative committees. He then quickly clarified that he’s really Rep. Anderson.
