Laurie Boeckel, legislative vice president of the Idaho State PTA, urged the state Land Board to keep in mind the beneficiaries of the state endowment when it makes its decision on cabin lease rents, urging the board to "act in a manner that has the undivided loyalty to the beneficiaries, which are the children in public education now and in the future." She also requested that if the process goes into mediation, the PTA be invited to participate. Attorney General Lawrence Wasden thanked Boeckel for participating in the meeting, saying the beneficiaries' interests are key.
