It’s the 61st legislative day…

The Idaho House was in session early on Friday morning, but got bogged down in a long debate on a bill regarding dyed motor fuel, and didn't get to hotter issues further down its agenda. It was the 61st day of this year's legislative session. (Betsy Russell / The Spokesman-Review)

Here's a link to my full story in today's Spokesman-Review on the legislative reaction yesterday to Gov. Butch Otter's plan to boost roads but cut schools; and here's a link to my full story on the Senate's 30-5 passage yesterday of the day care licensing bill. This morning, the House is in session early, but has gotten bogged down in a long debate over a bill regarding dyed motor fuel; and the Joint Finance-Appropriations Committee is scheduled to meet at 9 to set new spending targets for both the 2009 and 2010 budget years. That's the key number on which all budgeting decisions then will be based; the joint committee is scheduled to start setting budgets next week, nearly a month behind schedule.
