So many people have shown up for the print hearing this morning for the “Add The Words” human rights bill that the line to get into the small committee room stretched down the hall; after the room overflowed, Senate State Affairs Committee Chairman Curt McKenzie, R-Nampa, decided to move the hearing across the way to the much larger Capitol Auditorium. The auditorium is now rapidly filling up; McKenzie has announced that the meeting's start time has been pushed back from 8 a.m. to 8:15.
