Eye On Boise

Senate adjourns until 9 a.m. Friday

At nearly 7:30 p.m., the Senate suspended its rules and took up HB 338, the ethanol exemption bill, and passed it on a unanimous, 33-0 vote. “This is part of the package that we’ve all now discussed and talked about over and over and over again,” Senate Transportation Chairman John McGee, R-Caldwell, told the Senate. “Essentially, by removing this exemption we are freeing up $16.4 million for roads and bridges in the state of Idaho.” Then, after a long day of starts and stops, the Senate adjourned until 9 a.m. on Friday.
