Back To Work At The Idaho Legislature – Ethics, Lobbyists and Snow

What do they have in common? I have not figured it out yet, but they all came together in our first week back at the Capitol. We started with a combined ethics training for the Senate and House which was both entertaining and informative. The lobbyists have wasted no time getting to know our large freshman class and renewing acquaintance with those who have been here a while. There have already been plenty of breakfasts, lunches and dinners to promote conversation and stave off calorie loss. In between the meals newly configured committees convened and started reviewing agency administrative rules. Idaho is one of the few states where the legislature has authority to review and reject new rules. Hurrah for that. We ended the week with a fine blizzard which kept some of the out of town legislators in Boise. It seems like I have shoveled snow close to ten times this week, but today I went cross country skiing — in the backyard — no need to travel far. Looking forward to next week.
