Idaho lawmakers honor Shawn Keough

BOISE – One North Idaho senator got a surprise on the final night of the legislative session – she was honored for becoming the longest-serving female senator in the history of the state.

Sen. Shawn Keough, R-Sandpoint, who has served for 20 years, said she found out she’s also the longest-serving senator from Bonner and Boundary counties, of either gender.

“I’m really honored, very humbled,” she said. Keough is the vice chairwoman of the powerful Joint Finance-Appropriations Committee, and is in position to take over as chairwoman if current Senate Finance Chair Dean Cameron, R-Rupert, were to retire. Betsy Russell, SR
