For Those Keeping Score At Home ...

... North Idaho has one more representative than Ada-Canyon counties on the powerful Joint Finance & Appropriations Committee, including Sen. Shawn Keough, R-Sandpoint, the vice chairman. Others from the north on the budget committee are: Sen. Joyce Broadsword, Sen. Jim Hammond, Rep. Frank Henderson, and George Eskridge. At the Idaho Statesman, Opinion Editor Kevin Richert laments the fact that the Treasure Valley has 37% of the population and only 20% of the JFAC seats. North Idaho legislators held onto three chairmanships -- Sen. John Goedde and Rep. Bob Nonini (Education) and Rep. Jim Clark, House Judiciary & Rules. Besides Keough, seven other vice chairmen hail from the five northern counties. Betsy Russell provides a list of all committee assignments here.
