House pays tribute to cancer patients, including wife of speaker

While the Senate was engulfed in its six-hour debate yesterday on the insurance exchange legislation, the House came together for an emotional tribute to cancer patients, including Sarah Bedke, wife of House Speaker Scott Bedke, who is currently undergoing treatment. Twin Falls Times-News reporter Melissa Davlin reports that Rep. Steve Miller, R-Fairfield, organized the tribute; his wife, Linda, died of cancer in November, just days after Miller won election to the House. Many House members wore pink in honor of the event; you can read Davlin’s full report here at her “Capitol Confidential” blog.
