House adjourns ‘til tomorrow, motion to adjourn sine die was an April Fools joke

The House has now adjourned until 11 a.m. on Tuesday; the House Ways & Means Committee announced that it would meet immediately on adjournment in the JFAC room, where it will consider a new bill from Rep. Jeff Thompson, R-Idaho Falls, on the Line Commission 2.0; and the House Education Committee announced it will meet at 10 a.m. tomorrow. No agenda has yet been posted for that  meeting.

Before the House adjourned, Rep. Lawerence Denney, R-Midvale, offered a motion for the House to adjourn sine die – without  a day, or for the session. House Majority Leader Mike Moyle, R-Star, seconded the motion – but then Denney said, “April Fool!” Moyle then made the real motion – to adjourn until 11 a.m. on April 2.
