Here’s an odd one

The negotiating room was packed a few minutes ago for the start of the 2 p.m. negotiating session between the House and the governor on highway legislation, but nothing had started. The reason?

Right outside the room, at a table in the capitol’s snack bar area, four key players – Kempthorne Chief of Staff Brian Whitlock, House Transportation Chairwoman JoAn Wood, Rep. Mike Moyle and Rep. Ken Roberts – were gathered for a mini-negotiating session.

Everyone else was just waiting.
