Idaho Secretary of State Ben Ysursa noted this morning that he's coming before JFAC for his budget hearing today on the day of the funeral for Atwell Parry, the former senator and JFAC co-chair from Melba who died on Friday. "He was a good man and a fair man, and I know that you continue his tradition," Ysursa told JFAC. Parry's funeral begins at 11 at the Nampa South LDS Stake Center, 7809 Deer Flat Road in Nampa, with interment following at Melba Cemetery. That's why the Senate isn't scheduled to go on the floor today until 2:30 in the afternoon.
