Legislators and onlookers have been filing in to the BSU Special Events Center, milling around and waiting for the governor’s State of the State speech. First, a note on the time stamps that appear on these blog posts – they’re in Pacific time, as are our newspaper’s servers. But the speech is happening in the Mountain time zone. So if the time stamp says an item was posted at 2 p.m., it’s actually 3 p.m. in Boise, which is when the speech starts. Now, the House has been called to order in this unusual theater setting, the roll has been called, and the joint session is beginning.
Short takes and breaking news from the Idaho Legislature and the state capital.
