The Senate Commerce Committee has temporarily relocated to room EW 20, and the Senate Transportation Committee to Room EW 40, but neither meeting has been called to order. Among the reasons: The chairmen of both panels are blockaded in their offices by "Add the Words" protesters, who also are blocking their regular hearings rooms. Senate Majority Leader Bart Davis, R-Idaho Falls, said, "It's my understanding that we have a white bus en route." That's the type of vehicle the police used for the last protest that ended in arrests, to transport protesters who refused to leave to jail.
