Senate State Affairs won’t vote today on Capitol grounds use rules

Amid many questions, the Senate State Affairs Committee has wrapped up its hearing this morning on proposed new use rules for the Capitol and its grounds without a vote, postponing that until its next meeting on Wednesday. Chairman Curt McKenzie said before voting, he’d like to hear from Monica Hopkins, ACLU executive director, on the lawsuit between Occupy Boise and the state over the rules and other issues. Also, several committee members needed to leave, but still have more questions. A subcommittee of the House State Affairs Committee is scheduled to consider the same rules this morning at 10.

You can read the rules here, which are in three dockets; they are on pages 7 through 46 of the 83-page PDF document. They don't apply to the interior of the state Capitol, but do apply to the exterior Capitol grounds and the interior and exterior of the rest of the Capitol mall.
