Senate Republicans emerged from their closed-door caucus, and their leadership, plus the Senate finance and transportation committee chairmen, headed straight over to meet with Gov. Butch Otter, who's already been meeting with House GOP leaders. Senate Majority Leader Bart Davis said the governor's office called to request the meeting. Meanwhile, Senate Minority Leader Kate Kelly, D-Boise, warned her caucus, "We're really in a holding pattern. It could really move fast once the dam breaks. We're just waiting."
