State Inspectors Stop Spread of Quagga Mussels; Feds Not Interested

Check out this article in the Idaho Statesman about how state officials stopped the spread of quagga mussels into the Northwest, while the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service “did not act as if it was an emergency.”

Once again, our federal dollars NOT at work.

The Statesman says this:

“This is the fourth season Idaho has had the inspection program funded by a boat stamp that was championed by Republican Rep. Eric Anderson of Priest Lake in 2009. Without this program these barges would have gone unnoticed and may have carried the mussels to a new home in the Pacific Northwest.”

Congratulations to the Idaho Department of Agriculture inspectors for a job well done.
