“We can make the choice to reinvest or we can make the choice to just cut for another year,” Rep. Bob Nonini, R-Coeur d'Alene, told the House in his closing debate. He was interrupted, however, by House Majority Leader Mike Moyle, R-Star, who asked to set the House at ease. The problem: Rules say when debate is cut off in the manner it was here, there is no closing debate. So now it's time for a vote.
