On Friday the Senate Resources and Environment Committee killed a bill that would have forced the Land Board to sell all commercial properties and sell or lease all improvements on endowment-owned ground, according to the Idaho Statesman.

Some have argued that the Land Board has overstepped its duties by getting involved with commercial properties, such as Affordable Self Storage in Boise, which interferes with the private sector.

Sen. Dean Cameron, R-Rupert, said he was against the bill because it would be unconstitutional to not allow the Land Board to due what it is charged with doing in the state constitution, which is to have the maximum return on investment.
