Bill to ban lawmakers from local elected offices pulled from House calendar, sent to amending order

Rep. Lynn Luker’s bill to ban state lawmakers from holding any other local elected office, from highway district commission to irrigation board to city council, has been pulled from the House’s 3rd Reading calendar by unanimous consent, and sent instead to the House’s amending order. “It was not anticipated that we’d go quite as deep in the election process with the dual service restriction,” House State Affairs Chairman Tom Loertscher, R-Iona, told the House, “and so we do need to amend that bill.” The measure, HB 368, otherwise would have been up for debate and a vote today.
