Washington, D.C. – This week, staff from the Office of U.S. Senator Jim Risch (R-ID) hosted a second Scotchman Peaks open house in Clark Fork. Information about a potential wilderness proposal was on display, and staff from the Office of Senator Risch and the U.S. Forest Service answered questions and collected comments. At least 275 Idahoans were in attendance at Clark Fork, and nearly 300 at the initial meeting in Hope.
“I am grateful to the Clark Fork residents and others who engaged my staff for a community discussion about Scotchman Peaks,” said Senator Risch. “I have been very clear that I will not move forward with a legislative proposal until I hear directly from as many Idahoans as possible. We invite all Idahoans to continue the conversation by submitting their feedback through our regional offices and our website.”
