Rep. Dick Harwood, R-St. Maries, cast the only vote against HB 137, a measure to allow the state Parks Board to regulate discharge, but not possession, of firearms in state parks. Sponsors said last year’s strict pre-emption bill, which sharply limited regulation of firearms in Idaho by anyone other than the Legislature, kept the parks board from banning shooting at campsites and the like to protect public safety. The bill passed the House 66-1 and headed to the Senate.
