Nuxoll’s proposal subjected to embarrassment?

Commit No Nuisance

Editor’s comment:  I don’t get it.  Idaho State Sen. Sheryl Nuxoll introduces a bill that would allow local counties to declare the excessive wildfire risk in publicly managed lands around them when those lands represent a threat.  Yet Betsy Z. Russell’s column seems to fault Nuxoll’s bill on grounds that it’s almost identical to one in Utah.  Really?  Isn’t “model legislation” —  or patterning legislation on language embraced elsewhere — a common practice in state legislatures.  Like I said, I don’t get it.  Where’s the embarrassment in this?  Am I missing something?

    There’s noting wrong with model legislation that everyone agrees serves the public interest, but ALEC is a Koch-funded group that serves the interests of corporations, not the public.
