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.

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.
