RE EPA telling the state they could issue field burning permits in 
the face of the federal court ruling saying it was illegal to burn in 

"In an April 26 letter obtained by The Associated Press and signed by 
Sens. Larry Craig and Mike Crapo, and Reps. Mike Simpson and Bill 
Sali, all R-Idaho, the delegation pressured the EPA to tell Idaho it 
could resume issuing burning permits despite the 9th Circuit ruling.

"We now request your assistance once again to ensure the state of 
Idaho can move forward in issuing burning permits this year," the 
lawmakers wrote to EPA Administrator Steve Johnson in Washington, 
D.C. "Written guidance indicating the state is within its right to 
issue the permits would be extremely helpful at this critical time."


The EPA issued its letter the next day. Breathe deep everyone, our 
delegation is looking out for all of our interests.
