At 89, Rep. Henderson Going Strong

Idaho Rep. Frank Henderson, who at 89 is the oldest member of the Idaho Legislature, is pushing legislation this year he says will directly create dozens of jobs statewide; on Wednesday, his bill unanimously passed the House. Henderson meant it a year ago when he decided to give up his coveted seat on the Legislature’s budget committee to focus more on economic development. “I want to find ways to help our existing industries – help them expand into the domestic markets, help them expand into new markets, so they can retain their present workforce and hopefully expand it, so we can get more money into the local economies,” he said then/Betsy Russell, Eye On Boise.

Question: Are you as amazed as I am that state Rep. Frank Henderson is still going strong at 89, pushing economic development in the Idaho Legislature?
