House is done for the day

As the House prepared to wrap up its business for today, Rep. Tom Loertscher, R-Iona, rose and said, "We've got one of those cowboy poets in the loft upstairs, a gentleman from 15, he came up with a little deal that describes our situation pretty thoroughly." He then read: "The cattle are lowing, the alfalfa needs mowing, the weeds are all showing - but the Legislature's still going." Amid laughter, the House adjourned for the day.
