Here's a link to the 12th week of the Legislature in photos as a slide show. It was another week of grappling, without resolution, with big issues like state employee pay cuts and transportation funding. This photo shows House GOP caucus members just after the breakup of a two-hour closed-door caucus, in which they failed to reach agreement on the pay issue. Now, the 13th week is starting off on a down note, as the Senate takes Monday off for the funeral in Pocatello of the wife of Sen. Edgar Malepeai, D-Pocatello, Brenda. She died late last week, and he's been missing from the Legislature both this year and last to care for her in her illness; Dick Sagness, D-Pocatello, has been serving in Malepeai's place. The House will meet on Monday, but has little scheduled.
