Lawmakers passed a bill that authorizes the purchase of a new airplane for the governor. The plan to buy a new Beechcraft King airplane... costing more than 3 and a half million dollars... passed by a count of 34 to 5.

The five state senators who voted *against* replacing the current 1982 Piper Cheyenne plane include Danielle Conrad, Jeremy Nordquist, Norm Wallman, Al Davis, and Russ Karpisek.
