Idaho spoke missing from Hub funding

Idaho legislators this year didn't come through with any funding to plan for a proposed "Inland Pacific Hub" that would try to position the North Idaho-Eastern Washington region as a center for global commerce. But backers are still optimistic that the plan can move forward. Washington legislators set aside $250,000, the same amount backers had hoped Idaho would kick in, and a half-million in federal funding is in the works. "We are pursuing some grant opportunities to try to tide us over," said Sen. John Goedde, R-Coeur d'Alene. "If we can get something done to tide us over and then are able to successfully fund this in the next fiscal year, we'll still be all right." Read my full story here from Sunday’s Spokesman-Review.
