Dana Jablonski of Marsing was the first to testify Friday on legislation to evict the "Occupy Boise" encampment from state property. She said, "That tent is a representation of my presence, because I need to be heard." (Betsy Russell)

"Virtually everyone" who's signed up to testify on the anti-Occupy bill today has said they can't return on Monday, said House State Affairs Chairman Tom Loertscher, so they'll be allowed to testify this morning.

First up was Dana Jablonski of Marsing. Asked who she represents, she said, "The 99 percent, and myself." Jablonski told the committee, "The ones that are represented are the ones with the money and the power. ... I put a tent down at Occupy Boise, and I would come and spend the night on the weekends." It's gotten a little cold for her lately, she said. "I can't occupy your office with a lobbyist, so I occupy outside your window. ... That tent is a representation of my presence, because I need to be heard."
