This last legislative session saw plenty of toussling among Republicans who make up the supermajority in the Idaho legislature. Democrats called it the worst legislative session in Idaho’s history. House Republicans said last week they disagree, hailing transportation funding and income tax cuts as major accomplishments. On Thursday, House Speaker Scott Bedke sat down to give us his take. On Tuesday, the Commission of Pardons and Parole granted Gerald Pizzuto Jr. a commutation hearing, leading to cancelation of his scheduled June 2 execution. The commission will hold a public hearing in November to discuss whether they will recommend Gov. Brad Little grant him clemency. Pizzuto has been on death row for 35 years, after being convicted for the killings of 2 people in Idaho County. On Wednesday, Lieutenant Gov. Janice McGeachin announced she is running for governor.
