Eye On Boise

‘It’s better than not’

House and Senate GOP leaders emerged from their meeting with the governor just now looking somewhat encouraged, but reporting nothing more than vague “progress.” House Speaker Lawerence Denney, R-Midvale, said, “We discussed several things - nothing ready for prime time yet, though. … We will be talking to our caucuses.” The House GOP already had scheduled a caucus for tomorrow. Asked when he thought Idaho’s legislative session might end, Denney said, “It won’t be today - maybe tomorrow.” Senate GOP Caucus Chairman Russ Fulcher, R-Meridian, said, “Well, my personal opinion is not this week.” And Senate Assistant Majority Leader Joe Stegner, R-Lewiston, asked what came out of the meeting, said, “Nothing came out, but we’re communicating, trying to explore common areas of interest. It’s better than not communicating.”
