With time running out at the still-full nullification hearing in the Senate State Affairs Committee, committee Chairman Curtis McKenzie, R-Nampa, has again cautioned those testifying that as for "what I call Obamacare, we are on record as opposing that, both in the committee and on the floor." He asked people to limit their testimony to the bill itself, HB 117. The Senate was scheduled to convene its morning session right now, but the committee hearing still is going.
