Retiring lawmakers reflect on their service for DIALOGUE

April 29 2004 by Peter Morrill

Two retiring lawmakers, whose combined service in the Idaho State Legislature totals 44 years, appeared on DIALOGUE in a recent broadcast.

Senator Laird Noh (R-Kimberly) and Representative Ken Robison (D-Boise) talked with DIALOGUE host Joan Cartan-Hansen about the stories behind the law books and examined some the biggest political issues of the last 20 years.

Noh, elected to the Idaho Senate in 1981, has been chairman of the Senate Resources and Environment Committee since 1983. He is president of Noh Sheep Company, a fifth generation sheep ranching operation.

Robison served one two-year term in the Idaho Senate (1979-1981). He was elected to the Idaho House of Representatives in 1986 where he served 16 years on the Joint Finance-Appropriations Committee (JFAC) and has been a member of the House Resources and Conservation Committee.

During the live call-in show on Thursday April 8, Cartan-Hansen and her guests took phone calls from viewers on a toll free line.

The show is also available for viewing on the IdahoPTV Web site (
