After both caucuses, the Democrats and the Republicans, emerged from closed-door caucuses, the Senate has now reconvened and moved into its 14th Order, where bills are amended. There are multiple, competing amendments for both HB 206, which has two amendments, and HB 221, which has four amendments. Those are the two charter school bills. "We're going to have some today with conflicts," said Senate Assistant Majority Leader Chuck Winder, R-Boise, who chairs the amending order. "Be a little patient - we've got a lot to do here today."
