When Majority Leader Mike Moyle, R-Star, moved to adjourn the House for the session - sine die - Minority Leader John Rusche, D-Lewiston, responded, “Mr. Speaker, I can’t tell you how happy I am to second that motion.” Unlike most days, when Speaker Lawerence Denney called for “nays” from anyone opposed to the motion, not a soul spoke up. Amid laughter, Denney banged the gavel and the House adjourned sine die.
