Agreement reached on legislation for natural gas drilling


Sen. Dean Cameron, R-Rupert, is said by colleagues to be a leading contender to become the new director of the Idaho Department of Insurance.

The Idaho Association of Counties and the Idaho Petroleum Council say they have come to an agreement on legislation they plan to present in February. Both groups say the legislation would give some control to counties involving natural gas exploration and processing.

However, one conservation group thinks the legislation would take away too much local control, and instead give it to the Legislature.
