Senate Transportation to meet today, but only on one bill

The Senate has adjourned until 10 a.m. tomorrow. The Senate Transportation Committee will meet at 1:30, but Chairman John McGee, R-Caldwell, said there's just one bill on the committee's agenda, HB 286, from Rep. Frank Henderson, R-Post Falls, to adjust the description of the southern boundary of the Garwood-to-Sagle highway project on Highway 95 in North Idaho. "We don't want it to get mixed up and left behind in all this last-minute stuff," McGee said. "It's relatively non-controversial." McGee's committee still has two other, higher-profile bills awaiting hearings - the House-passed bills to remove the ethanol exemption and raise DMV fees. "That's part of the bigger picture," McGee said, when asked when those two bills would come up for hearings. "It will happen at some point."
