Senate prepares to adjourn, House takes a lunch break mid-debate

The Senate, preparing to adjourn sine die, has sent committees to inform both the House and the governor. Sen. John McGee, R-Caldwell, reported back, "We've spoken to the governor ... He's excited that we're going home." Sen. John Andreason, R-Boise, reported back from the House, "They said they'd be ready in a couple of hours."

The Senate is now saying its goodbyes and making some final presentations; meanwhile the House had taken a lunch break, without finishing its debate on the public school budget. The House is scheduled to return at 1:15.
