Members of the Idaho Senate split on protections for private property rights during a debate on measure to block government from taking land for recreational paths and greenbelts.

The bill, baby of Sen. Jim Guthrie, R-McCammon, passed the Idaho Senate on a 20 to 13 vote Monday. This is, at least, the Republican’s fourth try to push the plan through the Capitol.

The proposal now heads to the Idaho House for consideration.

During the Senate debate, lawmakers split on the bill, and opposition to the measure cut across party lines. Here are a some of the notable remarks on the measure:

Sen. Jim Guthrie, R-McCammon:

 

Sen. Marv Hagedorn, R-Meridian

 

Sen. Jeff Siddoway, R-Terreton


 

Sen. Cherie Bucker-Webb, D-Boise

 

Sen. Lee Heider, R-Twin Falls

 

And here are Guthrie’s closing remarks to the legislative body:
