Idaho Legislature ends session after 74 days

BOISE, Idaho (AP) The Idaho Legislature has wrapped up for the year after appropriating $6.69 billion.

The session lasted only 74 days that's two weeks fewer than last year's session and only five days longer than the record shortest session in 2004.

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.

This year the Senate has helped advance the public school budget, a tax incentive bill to draw businesses to Idaho, the agriculture security bill and many others.
