State: CdA Right Re: Recall Deadline

Petitioners gathering signatures to springboard a recall election on four Coeur d'Alene incumbents will have less than 75 days to collect enough autographs to make that happen. That's the verdict after the Secretary of State's office reversed its initial interpretation of statutes that govern the process. The 75-day timeline to gather signatures includes the 15 business days the Kootenai County Clerk's office will have to certify them, the Secretary of State's office wrote Wednesday in a letter to Coeur d'Alene City Clerk Susan Weathers. That means the city had been correct all along, and the 15-day certification time frame has to be factored into the 75-day window - not added to it/Tom Hasslinger, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.
