Idahoan Named Head of Power Councilby Staff
The Idaho Statesman, January 21, 2003
The Northwest Power Planning Council has elected Idaho member Judi Danielson as council chairwoman for 2003.
The Portland-based council was established by Congress with the Northwest Power Act of 1980. Eight members — two each from Idaho, Montana, Oregon and Washington — work to balance regional energy needs with fish and wildlife conservation.
Idaho Gov. Dirk Kempthorne appointed Danielson to the council in 2001. She served three full terms in the Idaho Senate.
Danielson also served as chairwoman of the Western Legislative Forestry Task Force and played a key role in the development of Idaho´s proposal for cooperative state and federal management of forest lands.
