We Don’t Want Stinkin’ Heavy Trucks

As the House continues its debate on the statewide heavy-truck bill, Rep. JoAn Wood, R-Rigby, told the House she couldn’t believe that big trucks would roll right through the center of towns. “Even in the little town that I live in, we have a truck route that goes around the town,” she said. Rep. George Eskridge, R-Dover, said, “We don’t have truck routes in Sandpoint. We don’t have ‘em in Laclede, we don’t have ‘em in Priest River. … We don’t have a truck route in Bonners Ferry either.” Rep. Cindy Agidius, R-Moscow, said, “It’s being brought from the north by a few companies. There’s just as many companies that don’t want it”/Betsy Russell, Eye on Boise. More here.

Question: Another very, very bad bill being forced on North Idahoans by the very, very bad Legislature. But state Sen. Bob Nonini, representing the Post Falls area, supports it. So perhaps I'm wrong on my analysis?
