Wasden: Land Board now has the ‘unified political will’ to deal with cabin-site issue

Idaho Attorney General Lawrence Wasden said the lawsuit in 4th District Court in which he challenged proposed cabin-site leases still is alive, despite today's Land Board action; it will look first at the constitutionality of the entire state law under which Idaho has been leasing out lakefront cabin sites without public auctions. "We've got a path forward, and that is a much more healthy place to be," Wasden said. "I commend my colleagues on the Land Board for doing that."

He said, "When you go back and look at the 80-year history of this problem, the real problem is not fluctuations in the market. The real problem is the lack of political will to get to a fair return." He said, "What we need is to have a unified political will to go forward - I think we've found that at this point."
