Idaho's legislature is in session. I've been monitoring their activity on this page. I can usually tell what abbreviations for actions taken on bills mean at a glance, but this one has me stumped:

H0001       Disasters, governor’s powers        H St Aff    *

From looking at an older session, I see many abbreviations that look like (H)ouse committees - i.e. "H Rev/Tax", "H Transp", etc. So I suspect this indicates a committee, but the name of it is eluding me (and Google isn't very helpful).

Clicking through on the bill number gives the unabbreviated version: "STATE AFFAIRS COMMITTEE"


Just after posting this (of course), I found a list of House committees. It's now obvious to me that "H St Aff" is the House State Affairs committee.
