Barrett: ‘It ain’t over ‘til it’s over’

Rep. Lenore Hardy Barrett, R-Challis, presented her non-binding memorial, HJM 1, to the Senate Resources Committee today urging delisting of the wolf in Idaho - though it already happened, just this morning. “This wolf dilemma is very personal to me,” Barrett told the committee. “I would like to close up the loose ends and put the Senate on board in support for this little HJM.” Of today’s federal action, she said, “We’ve been down this road before and I always say, it ain’t over ‘til it’s over.” Committee Chairman Gary Schroeder, R-Moscow, said, “If we stop now, then the Senate hasn’t approved this memorial and it’s just the House, and it looks like incomplete support.” The Fish & Game Commission sent spokeswoman Sharon Kiefer to testify in favor of the measure, and it won the committee’s approval unanimously, and now moves on to the full Senate.
