Eye On Boise

They’ll show us ‘quick’

As the Idaho Legislature convened officially at noon today, members of both houses expressed hope for a short session. “We’re looking for a very quick session,” Rep. Jim Clark, R-Hayden Lake, told the Senate on behalf of the House. Lt. Gov. Jim Risch, the Senate president, responded, “We likewise are looking for a short but productive, efficient, well-run and harmonious session.”

But bear in mind that Senate President Pro-Tem Bob Geddes’ stated goal for the session is 75 days – which would mean it’d end March 24th. He suggested that’s “a good goal,” and realistic, though perhaps optimistic. But it’s not exactly quick. Washington plans to wrap up its legislative session this year in 60 days.
