The week that was…

House majority and minority leaders huddle at the speaker's desk to discuss procedural issues, during a brief break in the debate on legislation to cut funding for public school teacher salaries by freezing movement on the salary grid for a year.

Here's a link to a slide show of the 11th week of the Idaho legislative session in photos. It was an eventful week, with major budgets set, and major legislation debated in both chambers, both on the floor and in committee. My favorite photo of the week is this one, showing the minority and majority leadership in the House gathered at the Speaker's desk in a rare confab, with the House at ease, as procedural moves were weighed in a fight over legislation to cut funding to schools.
