Eye On Boise

Last time Senate rejected a governor’s F&G nominee: 1974

The last time an Idaho governor’s appointee to the Fish & Game Commission was rejected by the Senate was in 1974, when Robert Thomas of Coeur d’Alene, who had been appointed by then-Gov. Cecil Andrus, was voted down as senators labeled him an “extreme environmentalist.” Every appointee since then – in nearly four decades – has been confirmed.
