Among the many fits and starts that the much-lobbied, much-amended charter school reform legislation went through was an odd one on Saturday morning. The Senate was getting ready to consider whether or not to concur with two rounds of House amendments to SB 1444. But the copy of the complex bill that was passed out to every senator had one problem - it had only the odd-numbered pages, and was missing all the even ones.
Sen. Tom Gannon, R-Buhl, said, "The good thing is half the controversy's gone."
The glitch held things up for an extra half-hour or more while new copies were made.
