Our edit today applauds a compromise on field burning in Idaho.
The overall compromise, which was guided by a mediator, was the product of a six-month effort by farming interests and health advocates. Before that, field burning had been halted by a federal court ruling.
Both sides deserve credit for coming together, rather than continuing the divisive battle in the courts.
If the law is successful, it could become a model for how to resolve collisions between growth and the practices of longstanding industries.
Do you think it will work this time?
