Carson and other protesters had been escorted to the front door by a state trooper and told they could re-enter, provided they didn’t cause a repeat disturbance.

They now face misdemeanor trespassing charges, punishable by up to six months in jail and a $1,000 fine.

Amid growing tension over whether an "Add the Words" bill will get a hearing, Idaho’s Capitol has been the scene of several low-key protests. On Friday, for instance, a small group with guitars sang songs in the Capitol, urging lawmakers to take up the issue.

LeFavour predicted additional action if lawmakers don’t agree to hold a hearing, saying "I don’t think you could stop people from showing up in greater numbers to do something peacefully, but pointedly, again and again and again."
