Eye On Boise

Risch goes on Lou Dobbs today to discuss Idaho family’s clash with EPA

Idaho Sen. Jim Risch will appear on the Fox Business Network for an interview with Lou Dobbs tonight, discussing government regulations and the case of Mike and Chantell Sackett of North Idaho, who the EPA says are attempting to build their home on a wetland. The interview will air live at 5:25 p.m. Mountain time, 4:25 p.m. Pacific time. The Sacketts bought their Priest Lake-area property for $23,000 in 2005; the 0.6-acre lot on the west side of the lake is surround by several other homes and has a sewer hookup. But when they moved to build a home, the EPA told them their land was a wetland; they've appealed all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court, which plans to take up their case in January. You can read more about the case here.
