Here's a link to my full story at spokesman.com and to links to briefs from both sides in today's oral arguments at the Idaho Supreme Court in the Land Board case, in which Idaho Attorney General Lawrence Wasden is suing the board - on which he serves - contending it violated the Idaho Constitution when it set rents for state-owned cabin sites well below market rents. The plan the board adopted in March would result in an effective rental rate of just 1.8 percent of current market value next year.
