More than two dozen labor unions from across the state are at the Capitol today and have booths set up in the 2nd floor rotunda; they represent firefighters, iron workers, electricians, sheet metal workers, postal workers and more. Leaders of 30 union locals met with lawmakers this morning as part of the event; they'll also host lawmakers at a "meet and greet" at the Basque Center tonight from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m.

It's also "Business Day" at the Legislature; the Boise Metro Chamber of Commerce hosted lawmakers at a noon luncheon and presentation today.
