BOISE, Idaho — Both the Idaho Senate and House passed a resolution to recess from May 6 to May 11, then return to business on May 12.

The measure was introduced in the Senate State Affairs Committee by Senator Chuck Winder (R)-Boise Wednesday morning.

Sen. Winder said this is to allow lawmakers to see if Gov. Brad Little will veto certain bills. With the recess, this will be the longest legislative session in Idaho history.

"It will enable us to finish our business later today or perhaps first thing in the morning tomorrow,"Winder said.
