Panel OKs New Tribal Police Bill

A new version of a tribal policing bill to replace HB 33 was introduced today on a unanimous vote in the House Judiciary Committee; it's mostly similar to the earlier measure, but makes a couple of changes suggested by the Idaho Sheriff's Association and a few clarifying tweaks, according to Coeur d'Alene Tribe Lobbyist Bill Roden. The tribe last year dropped proposed legislation when just as lawmakers were getting ready to pass it, Benewah County agreed to a cross-deputization agreement. Then, after the legislative session ended, the county backed out of the agreement/Betsy Russell, Eye On Boise. More here.
