Idaho Court sides with opponents of HWY 12 shipments

The Idaho hearing officer sided with the three opponents of the mega-loads yesterday. The shipments, the Connoco/Phillips ones, will be again put on hold until a full contested case hearing is conducted. The company has 14 days to request a reconsideration of the decision. The date for the next hearing has not been set, but the three opponents who filed suit against the shipments during the summer will be allowed to participate in the hearing. Ten others requested participation in the hearing, and the decision regarding their request is still forthcoming.

We applaud the work that folks in Idaho have done so far and wish them the best of luck.
