Tonight’s “Idaho Reports” on Idaho Public Television focuses on the newly passed, landmark legislation to designate the Boulder-White Clouds as wilderness, and features an interview with 2nd District Congressman Mike Simpson, who worked for 15 years to work out a wilderness bill that could draw support from parties ranging from ranchers and rural county commissioners to conservationists and backpackers. Also, Rocky Barker of the Idaho Statesman and Justin Vaughn of Boise State University join me and co-host Melissa Davlin on the pundits panel to discuss states’ rights, human rights, gender inequities and more.  

The show airs at 8 tonight; after it airs, you can watch it here online any time. It also re-airs Sunday at 10:30 a.m. Mountain time, 9:30 Pacific.
