Agreement reached on legislation for natural gas drilling


Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Oklahoma, has released a report on wasteful government spending and Idaho projects are cited three times among the Top 100.

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.
