Update: Rep. Marge Chadderdon, R-Coeur d'Alene, will miss the first three weeks of the legislative session for cancer surgery, and her daughter, Julie, will fill in for her. “The first three weeks are the rules, which I can follow somewhat on the computer,” Chadderdon said today. She'll go in for surgery at Kootenai Medical Center on Friday, and hopes to come to Boise and pick back up her legislative duties a few weeks later even if she has to undergo chemotherapy; she's already discussed possible arrangements with her doctor. “We'll kind of play it by ear,” she said. “It could be four to five months of chemo. It might not bother me. Some people, they don't get sick or anything”/Betsy Russell, Eye On Boise. More here.
