JMRusche (RE: Federal lands interim committee adds Sandpoint stop): Hmmm. How many interim committees meet in both Kamiah and St Maries, Coeur d'Alene and Sandpoint. While public involvement is important, I will point out that interim committees have no defined role in the legislative process. I wonder if there was as much interest in healthcare and Medicaid, or if this desire for input is new. Remember, We did lock down the capitol to prevent undesired interaction with citizens during the "occupy" episode.
Question: Can you think of an interim committee that really listened to Idahoans and not just the Id(aho)eologues?
