City Club of Boise Virtual Conversation: Congressman Mike Simpson's Energy & Salmon Concept


Join City Club of Boise in conversation with Congressman Mike Simpson to discuss his proposal which seeks to address what he describes as "unsustainable cycle of conflicts over salmon and energy. For over thirty years, lawsuits, appeals, salmon management directives and endless spending have prevailed, while salmon, energy, agriculture and transportation interests continue to suffer.” Simpson’s concept is a proposal “to break that cycle and deliver certainty and security to the Northwest without picking winners and losers."

Congressman Simpson will join moderator Dr. Katherine Himes, City Club board member and director of the University of Idaho's McClure Center for Public Policy Research, on March 23, 2021 at noon on Zoom.
