The Senate has adjourned for the day, after amending two bills, and passing and sending to the governor 18 appropriation bills that had already passed the House. Senate Majority Leader Bart Davis, R-Idaho Falls, said leadership will be meeting with the governor shortly. “Hopefully we can make progress today, and this afternoon, we certainly hope our friends in the body across the rotunda are willing to sit down with us, and hopefully resolve the impasse that currently exists,” he told the Senate. Meanwhile, the Senate Finance Committee has scheduled a 2 p.m. meeting, the Joint Legislative Oversight Committee will hold its final meeting at 3:30 in Room 145 of the Capitol Annex, and the House GOP leadership has scheduled a press conference for 3 p.m.
