2014 Idaho Legislature adjourns after 74 days in Boise

March 20, 2014 

The House and Senate both ended their sessions shortly before 7 p.m. Thursday.

Adjourning on the 74th day made the 2014 session the shortest since 2004, which ran 69 days.

The Senate had 26 or 27 measures to vote on before completing its work. The House had 41 bills on its calendar to begin the day. Operating the Legislature costs about $30,000 a day.

Senate Majority Leader Bart Davis commended his fellow lawmakers as their final day on the floor drew to a close.

Senators also regaled the gallery with the state song and "God Bless America" before adjourning for the last time.
