Idaho Governor Appoints New Member To Northwest Power And Conservation Council
Posted on Friday, March 08, 2019 (PST)

Idaho Gov. Brad Little announced today his appointment of Jeffery Allen to the Northwest Power and Conservation Council.


Allen has been the Northwest Power and Conservation Council’s Idaho Office Director and Policy Analyst since 2008. He now joins Jim Yost as the second Idaho representative on the Council, which includes Idaho, Montana, Oregon and Washington.


The Council is an interstate compact that helps plan the region’s energy future and manage natural resources in the Columbia River Basin. The Council develops, with broad citizen participation, a regional power plan and fish and wildlife program.


“Jeff’s deep knowledge of natural resources along with his extensive network of regional relationships make him an asset to Idaho on the Council,” Little said. “I am confident Jeff will work well with our regional partners to protect and promote Idaho’s interests and natural resource-based economies in his new role.”


“Water allocation, electric power rates, and salmon recovery are all issues of utmost importance to Idahoans,” Allen said. “I am extremely grateful to Governor Little for this appointment, and I am eager to fully engage in the Council’s efforts to ensure the region has a reliable and economical power supply while mitigating and enhancing fish and wildlife populations affected by power generation.”


Allen replaces Bill Booth, who had represented Idaho on the Council since 2007, and retired late last year.
