Hello, trolley – An electronic trolley bus, approved unanimously by the Spokane Transit Authority, will carry passengers from Browne’s Addition to the University District. If, that is, the $36 million price tag is approved by the city council. (KXLY)

Party disloyalty? Two North Idaho republicans got a no-confidence vote from the central committee for their proposals in the redistricting process. While Idaho state Sens.
