Idaho Department of Fish and Game's Land Acquisition and Management Program Report uri icon

Overview

abstract

  • PAG Report 3 | Published October 1990 | The program's history, purpose, and status was analyzed to educate voters about a referendum for a constitutional amendment that would authorize the Department to make payments in lieu of property taxes to the counties where the Department's 116,101 acres of land are located. Neighboring states own at least as much land exclusively for wildlife purposes; Utah and Washington each have three times as much. Information in the report appeared in newspapers and was used in the legislature. Voters approved the referendum, and a bill introduced in the 1992 legislature to implement such payments quietly passed into law.
