Crowd places sticky notes, sings ‘We Shall Overcome’

After the Senate State Affairs Committee's decision this morning not to introduce the “Add The Words” legislation, the crowd filed out, and in the hallway outside the Capitol Auditorium, a group began singing “We Shall Overcome” in ringing tones.

Here, a capitol security guard removes sticky notes from the dais in the hearing room, placed there shortly after the committee adjourned, asking for Idaho to “add the words.” The sticky-note campaign, which has been going on all session, has placed hundreds of notes around the capitol asking for support for the bill, which has never been given a hearing despite six years of attempts.
