BOISE — Idaho House Republican Caucus member Rep. Judy Boyle, R-Midvale, is the new chairwoman of the Western Legislative Forestry Task Force. The District 9 Representative was elected at the group’s annual meeting in the Sandpoint area.

“I am honored to be the new Chairman of the WLFTF, and I am getting right to work,” said Boyle in a news release. “The poor health of our federal forests is creating massive fires that are putting lives, homes, and livelihoods at risk.”

The task force helps promote sound forest practices and solve complex forestry issues with individuals that have a Western forestry background. The Task Force members advocate for cooperative action on forestry and related resource matters.

Boyle’s term is 2019-20.
