Eye On Boise

Consumer protection paying off for state

Idaho Attorney General Lawrence Wasden reported this morning that his Consumer Protection Unit recovered more than $1.6 million for Idaho consumers last year – the 16th consecutive year in which the amount recovered exceeded the state’s general fund budget appropriation for the consumer protection unit. At the end of 2006, he transferred $150,000 in surplus money from the program to the general fund. That makes more than $1.5 million in such transfers since 2003.
