As the House convened today, it moved to the 13th order, and the clerk read the list of committee assignments, listing all members of three committees – Commerce, Environment and State Affairs. Missing from all three was the name of Rep. Heather Scott, R-Blanchard.
“Without objection, the House will now advance to the 16th order of business, announcements,” Bedke said. Rep. Ron Nate, R-Rexburg, rose, saying he wanted to ask a question of the speaker. “Tread lightly, but proceed,” Bedke responded. “Is there a formal motion on committee selection that is made or an opportunity to make an objection?”
Bedke responded, “There is not. Take your seat.”
