Sims Targets Urban Renewal Law

Some legislators are looking to deal with budgets, taxes, and spending, while one from north Idaho – Rep.Kathy Sims, R-Coeur d’Alene – wants to reform urban renewal districts.  Others, like Sen. Steve Vick, R-Hayden, Rep. Jim Guthrie, R-McCammon, and Rep. Vito Barbieri, R-Hayden Lake, want to deal with policy issues, but also want to wage ideological battles to fight back the encroachment of government on the lives of private citizens. Rep Linden Bateman, R-Idaho Falls, says he will take issues as they come, but is open to hearing proposals about raising state revenue/Dustin Hurst, Idaho Reporter. More here.

Question: Which freshman legislator from North Idaho will gain the most notoriety in the 2011 session -- notoriety meaning "widely but unfavorably known or talked about"?
