Evict Occupy Boise Bill Amended
BOISE, ID – Idaho Senators changed part of a bill today to get Occupy Boise off state lands. The bill no longer treats personal property as litter if protestors are evicted. Majority Leader Bart Davis added what’s known as an abandonment period: “Providing for a 90-day time to reclaim your property. And if it’s not within that 90-day time period it’s abandoned.”
Senators also talked about getting protestors off state land by July 1st rather than right away. But only the change to personal property survived. Occupy Boise members have camped out on the grounds of the Old Ada County Courthouse since November.
