Original Message The president of Move Oregon's Borders told the committee that some Oregonians are willing to lose some of their freedoms granted under Oregon law to be in Idaho.

BOISE, Idaho — Comparing the meeting to a young suitor coming to plead their case to a would-be father-in-law, an Oregon man behind the plan that would move Idaho's borders into Oregon, California and Washington made his case to Gem State lawmakers on Monday.

Mike McCarter, the president of Move Oregon's Borders, first came up with his idea of 'Greater Idaho' over a year ago and it received its first official meeting on Monday.

So far, four Oregon counties have voted to approve the plan. Five others will vote on it next month and six others are still trying to get it on the ballot. To make it a reality, the group would all 19 counties to approve of it, plus portions of a few others. Then it would need both the Oregon and Idaho legislatures to pass it, and Congress would also give it the OK.
