Agreement reached on legislation for natural gas drilling

Rep. Joe Palmer, R-Meridian, says he is not surprised Boise State did not confiscate any guns at the football game Saturday because most people follow the rules and carrying a gun to the stadium is against the rules.

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.
