Stimulus tally: WA 2 yeys; ID 2 nays

No big surprises locally on the Senate vote on the stimulus package. Or as Idaho Sen. Jim Risch calls it in his press release the “so-called stimulus package.”

Which probably tips people to the fact that Risch and fellow Idaho Republican Mike Crapo voted no.

Sens. Patty Murray and Maria Cantwell, D-Wash., voted yes.

Want to read more from any or all, here are links to their official pronouncements. (Hint: they really are talking about the same bill, even though it may not seem so at first glance.)

The Cantwell statement isn’t posted on her Web site yet, but go inside the blog to read Tuesday’s press release.
