The Senate has voted 26-9 in favor of HB 404a, the anti-Occupy Boise bill, which would evict the encampment from state property on an emergency basis. The bill now goes back to the House for a vote on it as amended in the Senate, which adjusted clauses on property seizure. In the vote, every Senate Democrat voted against the bill, and they were joined by two Senate Republicans, Sens. Patrick Malloy, the substitute for Sen. Shirley McKague, R-Meridian; and Sen. Dan Johnson, R-Lewiston. All other GOP senators voted yes/Betsy Russell, Eye On Boise. More here.
