7th Grader Back w/Amphibian Bill

An Idaho seventh grader went toe-to-toe with the Senate’s majority leader on Friday – and won, reports Clark Corbin of Idaho Education News. Seventh-grader Ilah Hickman, who successfully got her bill introduced last year to make the Idaho Giant Salamander the official state amphibian but then didn’t get a hearing, returned to the Statehouse today, and this time, is starting her bill on the Senate side. In this photo by Corbin, she’s shown with Sen. Janie Ward-Engelking, D-Boise/Betsy Russell, Eye on Boise. More here.

Question: Do you have a favorite amphibian?
