The Idaho Legislature is dealing with anti-camping legislation as the third week of the 2012 session begins and it doesn’t have anything to do with Forest Service campgrounds.
Legislation has just been introduced to force several Occupy Movement folks from state-owned lands in front of the old Ada County Courthouse, according to Marc Gibbs, Franklin County’s representative.
He said the state doesn’t have any anti-camping laws and this measure, if approved, would force the campers off state ground. For several weeks protesters have pitched tents and been staying on the state land, which includes a nearby Veterans War Memorial. (See the full story in The Preston Citizen.)
