Republican takeover of the U.S. House makes Rep. Mike Simpson (pictured in AP file photo, left) chairman
of Appropriations Subcommittee on Interior and Related Agencies and the
second-ranking Republican on the Subcommittee on Energy and Water
Development. The two committees are in charge of funding the federal
agencies that control 64 percent of Idaho’s land area. Simpson
also was an early supporter of House Speaker-in-waiting John Boehner.
The Idahoan is one of six Republican congressman in Boehner’s inner
circle/Rocky Barker, Idaho Statesman. More here.
Question: Who were the winners & losers from the 2010 elections, locally & statewide?
