  • Nez Perce Tribe opts out of salmon talks

    Lewiston, Idaho (AP)

    The Nez Perce Tribe has withdrawn from settlement negotiations over the federal government’s plan to reconcile hydroelectric dam operations with efforts to restore imperiled salmon and steelhead runs.

    The tribe on Aug. 19 said it would continue to be involved in litigation over the plan. Nez Perce officials said they support dam removal as the best way to restore the runs.
