Three bills pass House, Senate bogs down

The House has passed all three of the bills on its suspension calendar. HB 211, the higher education residency bill, passed unanimously, 60-0. SB 1130, Sen. Tim Corder’s truck trip-permit bill, passed on a 57-3 vote. And HB 376, the new version of the fund shift for ISP and state parks a year from now, passed, after substantial debate, on a 46-18 vote. Meanwhile, the Senate bogged down in its amending order, as Senate Majority Leader Bart Davis, R-Idaho Falls, sought to attach an amendment to HB 286, a bill from Rep. Frank Henderson, R-Post Falls, to redefine the southern terminus of the Garwood-to-Sagle freeway project in North Idaho, with Davis’ amendment dealing with a stretch of road near the Idaho National Laboratory and Ashton in eastern Idaho.
