PUBLIC LANDS -- This is promising in an era of deadlock:

Interior secretary seeks invite from Idaho on Boulder-White Clouds plan
While visiting Stanley on Monday, Interior Secretary Sally Jewell said she'd welcome an opportunity to discuss the proposal to designate the Boulder-White Clouds area as a national monument, an invite that's more likely to come from local officials rather than the state's federal delegation of lawmakers given that all four have said they would oppose President Barack Obama's use of the 1906 Antiquities Act to create the national monument.
