House rejects survey of historic barns

House Agriculture Chairman Tom Trail's resolution encouraging the state Historical Society to conduct a study of the state's historic agricultural buildings was rejected in the House on a 20-48 vote, after House GOP Caucus Chairman Ken Roberts, R-Donnelly, spoke out against the measure, HCR 26, in part because of its $5,000 cost. A few minutes later, Rep. Phil Hart, R-Athol, asked unanimous consent to change his vote on the measure, but Roberts objected, and the vote change wasn't allowed.
