Eye On Boise

It’s all over now

The Idaho House adjourned its 2004 session at 5:45 p.m. on Saturday, March 20th, and the Senate followed suit at 6:52 p.m.

Gov. Dirk Kempthorne hailed lawmakers for their 69-day session, saying, "I think we have seen tremendous progress made." But with 200 to 300 bills waiting on his desk as the lawmakers left town, Kempthorne wasn't all sweetness. Though he hadn't used it yet, the governor said, his VETO stamp was "still inked and ready."
