The article evaluates the bill on the proposed coal-fired power plant to be built in Idaho. The bill has already been approved by the House of Representative but was postponed to operate for already two years. There might be a possibility that the plant will not be allowed to operate completely because of the oppositions raised in the Senate. In the opposition side, Senator Clint Stennet emphasized his opposition concerning the coal plant due to the impact of lethal mercury compounds in Idaho environment. According to Stennet, nothing could change the face of Idaho as significantly as the coal-fired power plant. The affirmative side however, had raised their disapproval of Stennet's opinion but still the bill on anti-coal power plant won an approval.
