Idaho House Resources Committee meeting on suction gold dredging, February 3, 2014.
The EPA recently declared that suction gold dredgers in Idaho are required to obtain a NPDES (National Pollution Discharge Elimination System) permit despite the numerous studies that have concluded suction gold dredging has a "less than significant" impact on the environment. 

The Idaho House Resource Committee invited several individuals to speak about suction dredge mining, and all of them were in favor of allowing suction gold dredging.

Tom Kitchar, President, Waldo Mining District
Idaho County Sheriff Doug Giddings
Idaho County Commissioner Jim Chmelik

The video is approximately one hour long.
