Otter holds Capitol for a Day in Kuna

I’m covering Idaho Gov. Butch Otter’s Capitol for a Day in Kuna this morning at its city hall.

I’m here because Bureau of Land Management officials are on hand to talk about the controversial Gateway West power line transmission project. One of the proposed routes runs right through Kuna.

Otter said this is his 61st Capitol for a Day. He remembered playing in a country western band years ago in Kuna at a prominent bar called the Redeye Saloon. He said the name was appropriate.
