Forty-six “Add the Words” protesters, including one juvenile, one man in a wheelchair, and three others who use walkers or other assistive devices to get around, were arrested this afternoon after blockading the Senate garden-level hallway that leads to all Senate committee hearing rooms, closing off access and forcing the cancellation of two 1:30 p.m. committee hearings. The protesters were taken to a ground-floor Capitol visitor room for processing, where they were searched and their wrists bound with large plastic zip ties, and their belongings placed in plastic bags. Then they were led out to a bus waiting in front of the Capitol for the ride to jail, where they may post bond/Betsy Russell, Eye on Boise. More here.
Question: Will the 2014 Legislature be able to ride out the "Add the Words" protests?
