Senate puts off consideration of amendments to HB 404, the anti-Occupy Boise bill

The Idaho Senate has put off consideration of amendments to HB 404, the anti-Occupy Boise bill. “It's definitely certain it's not going to be today,” said Senate Assistant Majority Leader Chuck Winder, R-Meridian. The reason: Though two proposed amendments have been submitted, others are still in the works, Winder said. The Senate likely will take up amendments tomorrow, Winder said.

Senate President Pro-Tem Brent Hill, R-Rexburg, said he's already indicated he's supportive of Senate Majority Leader Bart Davis's proposed amendments, to adjust the clause in the bill about declaring personal property left on the site litter and disposing it. But Hill said after earlier raising the possibility of considering removing the bill's emergency clause, he's not proposing an amendment to do that. Asked if there are enough votes in the Senate to do that, Hill said, “I doubt that there is.”
