Drinking from a fire hose can be a little disconcerting at times, but for two freshman lawmakers from north central Idaho, it’s also been fun.

Sen. Robert Blair, R-Kendrick, didn’t even find out he’d be here until November. That’s when newly elected Lewiston Mayor and state Sen. Dan Johnson asked Blair to substitute for him for the 2022 session.

“It was like, ‘OK, I’ll do it.’ ‘Great, pack your bags,’ ” Blair recalled.

Rep. Lori McCann, R-Lewiston, had a little more advance warning. She was appointed to office last May, after former Lewiston Rep. Aaron von Ehlinger resigned his seat. She attended the three-day session last November, when the 2021 session finally ended, but had to wait for the ’22 session to get the fully monty.
