There were 15 committee members present, and 12 guests. Also welcomed was Katie Higgins, our web site designer and manager.
Minutes were read, and then corrected by Idaho County Sheriff Doug Giddings who suggested a change with regards to the law enforcement issue with the Forest Service. It should read; the countys jurisdiction would not change, the forest service would expand.

Mid-Year Meeting Report
Attending were State Committee Members John Solberg, Eileen Uhlenkott and Marge Arnzen. John noted that 11 resolutions were presented and 8 were adopted.
