'Some would have liked a different outcome'

Gov. Otter defended the fuel tax agreements he negotiated with four Idaho Indian tribes, calling them “landmark agreements.” He added, “A lot of credit goes to the leaders of the Coeur d’Alene, Shoshone-Bannock, Nez Perce and Kootenai tribes. I realize that some people would have liked a different outcome. But those agreements bring us certainty, and they are the result of good-faith negotiations based on a shared interest in what’s best for Idaho.”
