Despite vehement debate in favor of it from House Majority Leader Mike Moyle, R-Star, the House has defeated SJR103a, a proposed constitutional amendment regarding militia service, on a 33-37 vote. It needed two-thirds support to pass. A laughing Moyle said afterward, “In 16 years, that's the first one I lost.” The House then moved on to several other measures. Meanwhile, senators are saying their goodbyes, including some who won't be returning next year - Sen. Russ Fulcher, R-Meridian, who is running for governor, and Sen. Les Bock, D-Boise, who is running for district judge, among them/Betsy Russell, Eye on Boise.
Question: I don't know what kind of goofy was attached to that militia service bill, but are you as happy as I am that the Idaho Legislature is almost over for the year -- and can do no more damage to average Idahoans?
