Senate rejects Hurlock confirmation

The Senate has voted 16-19 on the motion confirm Joan Hurlock to the Idaho Fish & Game Commission, after a debate that ran for nearly two hours and pushed back both the Senate’s scheduled Lincoln Day ceremony and the lunch hour. That rejects that motion; it then voted by the opposite vote, 19-16, in favor of Sen. Lee Heider’s original motion to reject the nomination. It's an extremely rare move, rejecting a governor's appointee; you can read my full story here at

Those senators voting to reject the nomination were Sens. Bair, Bayer, Cameron, Davis, Fulcher, Goedde, Guthrie, Hagedorn, Heider, Hill, McKenzie, Mortimer, Nonini, Nuxoll, Pearce, Siddoway, Thayn, Vick and Winder.

Those backing Hurlock's nomination were Sens. Bock, Brackett, Buckner-Webb, Durst, Johnson, Keough, Lacey, Lakey, Lodge, Martin, Patrick, Rice, Schmidt, Stennett, Tippets, and Werk.
