Roberts tries to amend tribal policing bill, angering committee that heard it

Rep. Ken Roberts, R-Donnelly, has moved to send HB 111, the tribal policing bill, to general orders for amendments - drawing vehement debate against his motion from members of the House Judiciary Committee, who voted down such a motion after a six-hour hearing last week, and voted instead to send it to the full House for an up-or-down vote. "I'm tired of the games," said Rep. Julie Ellsworth, R-Boise. Reps. Bill Killen, D-Boise, and Janice McGeachin, R-Idaho Falls, also spoke out strongly against the motion, as did Rep. Brent Crane, R-Nampa, who said the House should respect the committee process.
