Eye On Boise

‘Add the Words’ protesters blockade Senate committee hearing rooms, meetings being moved…

“Add the Words” protesters are blockading the Senate garden-level hallway where committee hearing rooms are located, blocking access at both ends plus standing outside the hearing rooms themselves. Senators, lobbyists, and people waiting to attend afternoon committee hearings – including citizen activists hoping to testify on a bill to restrict payday lending – are milling around the hallway as Senate officials try to identify House hearing rooms where they can move the 1:30 committee meetings, because it could take up to an hour for the protesters to be arrested and removed.
