Eye On Boise

Clark Fork jackpot

Rep. John Campell, R-Sandpoint, told the House that the sale of the University of Idaho's Clark Fork Field Campus was "a travesty of justice."

"Whoever bought that hit the Idaho jackpot," Campbell said. "I think we ought to change this law to make sure this never happens again."

The House agreed, voting 66-0 in favor of HB 778, the measure championed by Rep. George Eskridge, R-Dover, to impose new restrictions on how the university disposes of property. Eskridge thanked the university for working with him on the changes.
