Seantor Crapo and KVRI Board
Idaho Senator Mike Crapo took time from his busy schedule to meet with the Kootenai Valley Resource Initiative Board for lunch on August 29. Left to right are County Commissioner Walt Kirby, commissioner LeAlan Pinkerton, Ron Abraham, Kootenai Tribe of Idaho, Senator Mike Crapo, Commissioner Dan Dinning, Bonners Ferry Mayor David Sims and Gary Aitken Jr., Kootenai Tribe of Idaho.

Among the discussions Senator Crapo, a long-time admirer of the KVRI, took part in were, "How is collaboration going for KVRI -- are we making gains toward forest restoration?;" "Will there be continued funding for forest restoration work?;" "Is there potential for a budget fix to fund the Forest Service to fight wildfires without exhausting their budget for other work?;" "What's happening with funding for Secure Rural Schools, which provides money to the county for roads?;" and "Sharing the huge success of burbot recovery ... looking down the road to fishing for them again someday."
