Big stink settling down in Idaho

It looks like they'll be burning the grass fields in Idaho again this fall, after the practice was halted out of environmental concerns. The environmentalists and the grass farmers over that way have cut a deal that they say should provide protection for vulnerable people from the serious health problems caused by grass smoke. Under the brokered agreement, the clean air standards will be even stricter than those imposed by federal law.

You wonder how the terms of the new pact stack up against the current state of the law regarding field burning here in Idaho's Portugal. Hey! Maybe the Oregon Legislature could... nah, never mind.
