Senate adjourns ‘til 1 p.m. Monday; House will be back at 9 a.m. tomorrow…

After a long day of starting and stopping, the Senate has adjourned until 1 p.m. on Monday; the House earlier adjourned until 9 a.m. on Friday.

Before the Senate adjourned, Sen. Jeff Siddoway, R-Terreton, announced that he won’t be back next week; he’ll have a substitute fill in for him. Siddoway, who is retiring after this year, took time to say some thank-you’s and goodbyes before the Senate adjourned.

“Sometimes you think you might not have much of an impact,” he said, “but believe me, everybody in this room carries a lot of weight.” Siddoway is completing his sixth Senate term; he currently chairs the Senate State Affairs Committee and is the former chairman of the Senate Local Government & Taxation Committee.
