Eye On Boise

Rep. Scott stripped of all committee assignments

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.”
