Debate: Riding a pig ‘with spurs on’

Rep. Marv Hagedorn, R-Meridian, said, “All I can bring to the table is my experience in the Navy and my experience in the private sector. … This is probably one of the hardest decisions that I’ve had to make in this legislative body.” Hagedorn said, “Our choice is a federal exchange or a state exchange. I can’t ride this pig if it’s a federal exchange. I can ride it with spurs on if it’s a state exchange.” He said, “I select the one that I have at least the ability to spur once in a while.”

At the close of his debate, the Senate briefly went at ease again, and Senate Education Chairman John Goedde, R-Coeur d’Alene, announced that the 3 p.m. Senate Education Committee meeting will be canceled. Sen. Jeff Siddoway made a similar announcement for the Senate Local Government & Taxation Committee meeting that was scheduled for 3 p. m.; Sen. Lee Heider had already announced the cancellation of the 3 p.m. Senate Health & Welfare Committee meeting.
