Idaho Senators Introduce Budget Amendment To Protect Sage Grouse
Washington D.C. ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) Idaho Senators Mike Crapo and Jim Risch joined Nevada Senator Dean Heller to help save sage grouse. The amendment to the 2014 budget would mandate increased cooperation between federal, state and local agencies concerning the recovery of sage grouse.
The proposed amendment comes after the BLM announced it will reduce existing grazing allotments related to safe grouse recovery. The amendment would work with Idaho’s plan to save the sage grouse while maintaining public safety.
