Westrom runs House for a day
State Representative Torrey Westrom, R-Elbow Lake, acted as speaker of the House for the second time Tuesday afternoon.
Westrom, who is blind, relied on a staff member to tell him what lawmakers were waiting to speak on the tax bill members were debating.
"It's good to see you up there," Representative Connie Doepke, R-Orono, said to Westrom when she rose to speak.
Other lawmakers made similar comments.
