BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Idaho's top elected officials have directed the state agency responsible for administering regulations on 3,800 square miles (9,800 square kilometers) of state land to carry out a process to make sure those regulations don't expire.

Republican Idaho Gov. Brad Little and the rest of the Idaho Land Board on Tuesday voted 5-0 to direct the Idaho Department of Lands to proceed with temporary and proposed rulemaking.

The Idaho Legislature's failure to renew administrative rules before it adjourned in April means all state administrative rules expire at midnight on June 30.

The Idaho Department of Lands says it has gone through its administrative rules and identified rules to cut and others to reauthorize for temporary status.

The agency says the Idaho Attorney General's office has reviewed those decisions.
