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.)
