Senate Bill 1089: Blocking Public Land

On February 11, 2019, the Idaho State Senate introduced Senate Bill 1089 (S1089). According to the statement of purpose, this proposed legislation further clarifies in the law that it is illegal to block any public land from use or to place signs indicating that public land isn’t open. More frequently than in the past, individuals who want to reserve an area to themselves for hunting, or who want to divert traffic on the land for other purposes, have done just that. With this problem as a backdrop, Senate Bill 1089 allows for penalties including a $1500 fine and up to 6 months in jail for infraction of this law.
