      Why in the world would legislators in Idaho prevent free enterprise? There are certainly environmental safeguards in place and farmers and ranchers get the extra income from the placement of the windmills on their property. Sounds like win win for Idaho...or are the legislators bowing to the natural gas industry who do not want the competition.

      Because wind is a good and viable clean energy resourse and because Rep. Erik Simpson of Idaho is a IDIOT!!!

      we need to get out from behind the eight ball, we should be embracing all alternative renewable energy sources and break the stranglehold the oil companies have on us. I'm not really looking forward to five dollar a gallon gas, it's kind of amazing how that happens instead of the moratorium the legislature should be coming up with more money to advance green technologies (solar wind and biomass). It's time for the US to become a strong leadership nation again, it's unbelievable that there are countries in this world that are so much further advanced in these technologies it's time that this country steps up. And Idaho needs to be part of the solution not part of the problem.let's show the rest of the country that we do more than potatoes in Idaho.

      While I understand the challenges of integrating this incredible "new" energy source, we need to do everything we can to embrace, encourage, adopt and use this form of alternative energy in Idaho. Let's be a national leader in alternative energy! I strong encourage our legislature to reject HB 561.

      This job will provide work to North Eastern Nevada worker. Not only does our country need the energy to help offset rising petroleum costs, but it would put our some of unemployed Americans back to work. I am a carpenter, and for all of you critics out there who say things like "it is only temporary work", your criticisms do not hold water, let me elaborate. I have worked in construction for many decades, and I can tell you that temporary work is the norm, that's the nature of the beast, the majority of the time when a job is finished you get lade off, unless the contractor your working for has an other job going at the time, and even then they need to have a need for additional workers. The bottom line is you expect to be lade off when the job is finished any one who workers in construction knows this, except an apprentice maybe. So it may be temporary work but that is what we do, and we are the ones who have been hit the hardest by this down turn in the economy , and it is time some of us get a chance to go back to work.
