Rusche: ‘It was bad form’

House Minority Leader John Rusche, D-Lewiston, said after the vote on SB 1184, on which debate was abruptly cut off, “There were a number of people who hadn't had a chance to talk.” The bill was perhaps the most controversial one of the session, and the final piece of the education reform package; it was the only business scheduled in the House today.

“I don't think it changed the outcome,” Rusche said of the abrupt cut-off of debate, “but I think it was bad form. Cutting people off from having their voice is pretty typical for the Republican Legislature this year.”
