On April 19, 2011, Gov. Butch Otter signed a bill that would essentially allow him to declare a disaster due to the state’s wolf population, even as the animals were in the process of being removed the endangered species list.
Otter, the legislature, and the state court had been debating the wolf population issue for months when Otter signed this bill. A few weeks before the bill was signed, Rep. Mike Simpson inserted language to de-list the animals into a spending bill. This language that was inserted into the federal appropriation is not subject to judicial review, meaning that de-listing is almost guaranteed.
At least one conservation group, Defenders of Wildlife, opposed Simpson’s move and said that it’s an example of lawmakers playing politics with wolf populations.
The main backer of the state bill that Otter signed, Rep. Judy Boyle says the disaster declaration bill is still relevant because the state will be on probation for wolf management for the five years after de-listing. She also said that congressional uncertainty creates the need for the bill.
“What one Congress gives, one Congress can take away,” warned Boyle. ”We never know what the federal government will do and it’s notorious for going back on its word.”
Boyle won re-election in the 2012 election for Idaho House of Representatives District 9B. She defeated Kendall Nelson-Jeffs, Jeri Soulier and Daniel S. Weston in the Republican primary and defeated Mary Sue Roach (I) in the general election on November 6, 2012.

Idaho Freedom Index
The Idaho Freedom Foundation, an Idaho-based, nonprofit educational research institute, released its "Idaho Freedom Index" in 2013. The index intended to show how Idaho legislators voted on the principles the Foundation seeks to promote. It measured each state legislator based on two tiers, which include whether legislators voted for or against bills that would create or eliminate government agencies, programs, and regulations, and bills that would impact the free market in a positive or negative way. Scores ranged from the highest possible score for members of the state Senate (194 points) and for members of the state House (180 points). A higher score indicated that the legislator voted more in favor of the values supported by the Foundation. Boyle received a score of 120 points in the 2013 index, ranking 4th out of 70 members of the Idaho House of Representatives that were evaluated for the study.
