Before debating on Sen. Sheryl Nuxoll’s motion to move SB 1042, the insurance exchange bill, to the amending order, Sen. Dean Cameron, R-Rupert, made an inquiry of Nuxoll. “Are you aware of the position of the … Catholic diocese on the Plan B and Ella issue that you have bought before this body?” he asked. Nuxoll responded, “Yes, I am aware,” but Senate Majority Leader Bart Davis, R-Idaho Falls, asked that the Senate be placed at ease, and Senate President Pro-Tem Brent Hill smacked the gavel. While leaders pulled several senators into a back office, other senators gratefully rushed from the chamber to grab a snack or hit the restroom.
