SurvivalBlog’s News From The American Redoubt

This weekly column features news stories and event announcements from around the American Redoubt region. (Idaho, Montana, eastern Oregon, eastern Washington, and Wyoming.) Much of the region is also more commonly known as The Inland Northwest. We also mention companies of interest to preppers and survivalists that are located in the region. Today, we focus on Idaho legislative news. (See the Idaho section.)

Idaho Legislature still has a lot to do before wrapping up session. An excerpt:

“There’s also another bill in the works that would allow the Legislature to call themselves back into a special session. Right now, only the governor can do that.

The Senate passed their version of a bill that would allow special sessions for certain topics if 60% of lawmakers agree to return.”
