Idaho lawmakers seek grizzly amendment

Both of Idaho’s U.S. senators and North Idaho’s congressman introduced legislation Wednesday to amend the Endangered Species Act to reiterate that it’s OK to shoot a grizzly bear in self-defense or in defense of another person, in response to the Jeremy Hill incident. The law already contains a self-defense provision in the very next section after the one the new bill would amend. A spokesman for Idaho Sen. Mike Crapo said the bill would “bolster” that provision, but a national conservation group called it “political grandstanding.”

Bill would open door for more geothermal

BOISE – U.S. Rep. Raul Labrador, R-Idaho, is pushing legislation to ease restrictions on geothermal exploration on federal lands, a move experts say could lead to more development of a green energy source for which the United States is the world’s leading producer. The bill, H.R. 2171, cleared a House committee on a bipartisan, 26-16 vote this week and is now headed to the full House for a vote, likely in the fall.
