Special Session Decision Today

Gov. Butch Otter will hold a press conference this morning to announce what he plans to do about Idaho's potentially broken child support program. The governor is likely to announce whether or not he will call a special legislative session to deal with it. The child support program was put in jeopardy earlier this month when the Legislature decided to table SB 1067, which would have amended Idaho's current child support laws to make it easier to collect payments from non-custodial parents who move overseas. Lawmakers were told that all 50 states had to pass the legislation without amendments in order to comply with a treaty that was negotiated during the Hauge Convention 2007/Jeff Selle, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.

Question: Do you think Rep. Kathy Sims & the other 3 North Idaho amigos who voted against this important legislation in the House Judiciary & Rules Committee have had second thoughts?
