Here is a link to the 16th week of Idaho’s 2009 legislative session as a slide show, from angry standoff, to an attemped unilateral adjournment by the House midweek, and back to angry standoff. Because the Senate didn’t follow suit and adjourn sine die - for the session - the Idaho Constitution forces the House to come back and reconvene on Monday. Plus, House members continued to receive their session per diem pay during their four-day weekend, as technically, the session still was going.
