Inland Northwest lawmakers respond – and don’t – to Sondland testimony

Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers responded to the testimony from U.S. Ambassador Gordon Sondland with silence.

Eye on Boise: ‘Our support is necessary’ in Yemen conflict, Risch says

Here’s some of the reaction in Idaho on Friday to Sen. Jim Risch’s move Thursday to try to strip out the renaming of the White Clouds Wilderness in Idaho for the late Idaho Gov. Cecil Andrus – which delayed the Senate’s vote on the must-pass budget bill until after midnight, forcing some senators to be rousted from bed for the vote and throwing into disarray the travel plans of other senators who had official overseas congressional delegation trips scheduled to depart on Thursday night.
