Idaho Legislature

Scott Ki / Boise State Public Radio

The Idaho Legislature fast tracked a bill today that concerns how the Capitol Mall gets used.  This comes at the same time that Occupy Boise continues to keep a tent city up at the mall. That's been going on since November.  The bill creates rules for the area around the statehouse, for current and future protests.

UPDATE:  The bill to require women to have an abdominal ultrasound or a trans-vaginal ultrasound has already passed the Senate.  Lawmakers on the House State Affairs Committee were supposed to hear the bill Thursday morning, but in a surprise move late this afternoon, that meeting was canceled.  That leaves the bill's future in limbo.

ORIGINAL STORY:

Protesters at odds over a plan to require women to get an ultrasound ahead of an abortion staged separate demonstrations Wednesday at the statehouse.
