Senate may amend this afternoon…

The Senate has started its session, but hasn’t yet moved to its amending order, where it’s expected to take up transportation funding. Senate Majority Leader Bart Davis, R-Idaho Falls, told the Senate, “I do not know fully what’s going to happen between now and day’s end … so I’m trying to, together with the leadership team here, manage it moment by moment.” For now, he said, the Senate plans to suspend rules and take up the bills on its 2nd Reading calendar. Those include the budget bill for the state superintendent of schools and several Health & Welfare budget bills, though they skipped over the ITD budget. The tentative plan, Davis said, is to work until noon, then break until 1:30, then go at ease to allow for a caucus. “It is our current intention to go into the amending order this afternoon - what we will do there is yet to be determined,” Davis said.
