Lewiston Trib Jeers Labrador

JEERS ... to Congressman Raul Labrador, R-Idaho. When you see somebody resurrecting a piece of former Congresswoman Helen Chenoweth-Hage's portfolio, it's a good idea to ask why. Labrador wants Congress enabled to veto the president's authority to declare national monuments under the Antiquities Act of 1906. That's the law that Teddy Roosevelt used to preserve the Grand Canyon. It's the one Franklin Roosevelt applied to help save what became Grand Teton National Park. It's also the law used to expand Idaho's Craters of the Moon/Marty Trillhaase, Lewiston Tribune. More here.

More Idaho Opinion:

Question: Who would you trust more to do what's right re: wilderness designations in the West -- President Obama or Congressman Labradro?
