The House has recessed until 1:30, with just one more bill left to address before it gets to SB 1254, the controversial bill to allow guns on Idaho public colleges and university campuses. All of Idaho's public college and university presidents oppose the bill, as does the state Board of Education, but it's already passed the Senate. The National Rifle Association-backed bill is expected to pass, and Gov. Butch Otter has said he supports it.
Meanwhile, the Senate has recessed until 4 p.m.
