Rep. Marge Chadderdon’s flag-manufacturing bill, HB 249, was up in the House this morning, but when it came time, members of leadership from both sides and Rep. Chadderdon, R-Coeur d’Alene, were called up to the speaker’s desk, and a rather long confab followed, while House members milled around. Then came the announcement that the bill will be held until Monday. It already was amended once, due to concerns over a clause that said if an Idaho agency purchases flags that aren’t made in the United States, it can refuse to pay for them.
