Matter of Opinion

Field burning could resume

The Idaho Senate has just sent to Gov. Otter a bill that could allow for the resumption of field burning, which has been banned for over a year. Betsy Russell reports here.

It carries new restrictions on air-quality cutoffs and disclosure of which fields are scheduled to burn when.

Can you breathe easier knowing grass farmers might preserve their livelihood, or are you choked up over the return of black smoke clouds to North Idaho?
