They want northern hearings

Idaho Democrats are calling for hearings in North Idaho on the water rights agreement with the Nez Perce Tribe. Rep. George Sayler, D-Coeur d’Alene, said, “The judge’s gag order shut out the people’s opportunity to participate in the settlement, and now the people’s voices will be shut out again unless they can afford to leave work, pay for transportation and overnight lodging.”

The House Resources Committee has set two days of public hearings on legislation implementing the agreement for Feb. 22-23 in Boise.
