Republican Senate President Pro-Tem Brent Hill said Thursday he won’t seek re-election.
Hill has served in the Idaho Senate for 19 years, more than half of that as Senate president pro tempore. He served under four governors.
The retired accountant from Rexburg said he plans to more fully enjoy spending time with his wife and 20 grandchildren.
Hill’s term ends in November.
“It has been an incredible experience and I will always treasure my time serving the people of Idaho,” he said.
