Eye On Boise

A soft chair and the mice out

When JFAC approved funding this morning for the Capitol renovation project – including moving the Legislature into the abandoned old Ada County Courthouse across the street for at least two future sessions while the work is done, Co-Chair Rep. Maxine Bell, R-Jerome, commented as she made the motion – in JFAC’s elegant, marble-columned hearing room – “Basically I guess what I’m doing is throwing us out of this beautiful room and into an abyss which we know not of – so when I get through, I guess I want a soft chair, a phone system, a computer system and the mice out.”

Sen. Dean Cameron, R-Rupert, the panel’s other co-chair, responded, “We might be lucky to get a soft chair.”
