Idaho House  Wed 11-17-21

The Idaho House meets in the state Capitol on Wednesday, Nov. 17, 2021.

The House gaveled in at about 10:40 a.m. today and quickly went at ease as representatives await the Senate's decision on three House bills, writes Idaho Press reporter Ryan Suppe. House Speaker Scott Bedke, R-Oakley, said the session is "down to dotting the i's and crossing the t's, procedurally."

He told representatives to "stay close but no too close" as the Senate deliberates.

"We'll wait and see," he said. "If they act, then we'll have things to act upon. If they don't, then we won't."
