The Senate has now dissolved its Committee of the Whole Senate without successfully approving any amendments to the grocery tax bill, HB 81, but the bill remains on the amending order. When formally reporting to the Senate the progress of the Committee of the Whole, Chairman Sen. Joe Stegner, R-Lewiston, said the committee “reports progress, although it’s little progress, and beg leave to sit again.” The Senate is taking a break now, and will come back on the floor at 4 p.m.
