Labrador wants 31 acres of BLM land for gun range

Idaho 1st District GOP Congressman Raul Labrador announced today that he's introduced legislation that would transfer 31 acres of federal Bureau of Land Management property in Idaho County to the county for use as a gun range. “For years, the Idaho County Commission has been ready to install a gun range in the Riggins Area, but they’ve been prevented from building it because of cumbersome BLM regulations,” Labrador said in a statement.

He said under federal law, the BLM can't sell or give the parcel to Idaho County; and under agency policies, it can't lease it to the county. Betsy Russell, EOB More here.
