Session’s tally: 335 of 336 bills that passed both houses became law

Here's a  link to my full story at on how final piece of legislation from Idaho's  tumultuous 2011 legislative session has been allowed to become law without the governor's signature, adding a one-year phaseout to a funding cut for school districts that lose enrollment from one year to the next. That makes a total 335 of the 336 bills passed this year that Otter's allowed to become law, four of them without his signature; he vetoed just one.
