State of Idaho Archives: on Local Issues


Butch Otter: Transmission line over sage-grouse habitat on federal land

With the support of Idaho stakeholders, I submitted a commonsense management plan to prevent the need for listing the sage-grouse under the Endangered Species Act. Idaho's plan also ensures continued multiple-use of these federal lands, provides predictability for our ranchers and facilitates construction of a badly needed electrical transmission line across southern Idaho. I've been assured that Idaho will have a seat at the table in crafting a solution to the sage-grouse issue, and I will hold federal officials to that commitment. I encourage your continuing support for our efforts to engage Washington, D.C. on a whole range of issues that impact how our people live, work, build and pursue their dreams here in Idaho.
