One little problem with felonious sheriff bill…

There was just one problem with the bill to ban convicted felons from running for sheriff in Idaho – it was unconstitutional. You can read my full story here. And here are links to my other stories in today’s Spokesman-Review: Float-home bill advances despite objections from Bayview developer Bob Holland, and Election Day liquor bill heads to the governor – which contains this tidbit: The reason Sen. Clint Stennett missed the first, tied vote on the bill was because he was undergoing his daily brain cancer treatment, “getting zapped,” in his words. His vote in the do-over helped put the bill over the top. Yesterday was a heck of a news day in the Capitol Annex. Among the other stuff that happened: Two giant tax breaks designed to entice the French firm Areva to build a uranium enrichment plant in eastern Idaho passed the Senate and headed to the governor’s desk; click below to read the full report from AP reporter John Miller.
