Eye On Boise

‘An unusual year for everyone’

The Senate has wrapped up its business for the morning, with many senators headed to Allyn Dingel’s funeral at 10 a.m. Among this morning’s announcements were the appointments of three more substitute senators for next week, including Sen. Joyce Broadsword’s husband, John, and Sen. Lee Heinrich’s wife, Brenda. Broadsword, R-Sagle, said both she and Heinrich serve on the Western Legislative Forestry Task Force, which meets annually in Washington, D.C. to address state forestry issues with federal officials; Broadsword said this is the first time she’s had to make the trip during Idaho’s legislative session. “We usually plan it late enough that we’re sure it will be done,” she said. “But this is an unusual year for everyone.”
