The 2017 Legislative Session Began today! Three photos: 1.) High school choirs travel hours to perform in the Senate. (Bonneville and Highland) They were fabulous! 2.) Governor Otter’s State of the State address. Lots of spending. 3.) Barbara Morgan, teacher-astronaut, is honored with the very first Idaho Medal of Achievement, a new annual award. She was so humble, told a great story about being in space and watching “isolated thunder storms over the Indian Ocean” fire off and cause all the other area “isolated” storms fire as well. She observed it’s the same with all of us in Idaho being impacted by each other and creating a positive energy. It was a good day. Finance committee starts tomorrow at 8am.
