Eye On Boise

One reason to wrap it up?

If legislators need a reason to start wrapping up their session, now that it’s moved into its 64th day, here’s one: Today is the opening of the filing period for the May primary election, and every seat in the Legislature is up for a vote. That means that while lawmakers are here making laws, their potential opponents could be back home campaigning up a storm. Here’s a link to our story about the opening of the filing period. And also from this weekend’s Spokesman-Review, here’s my full story about how two North Idaho legislators helped engineer Gov. Butch Otter’s first major transportation victory of the legislative session Friday, even though the new $134 million highway bonding plan is targeted to the southern part of the state.
