Idaho lawmakers took three actions on Thursday that tribal leaders consider an attack on their sovereignty.

First, a gaming study that had been rejected was revived by a legislative committee. Next, a group of lawmakers announced they would challenge a tribal gaming initiative even before it goes to the ballot. Finally, a bill was put on the fast track to force tribes to pay gas taxes because the Supreme Court wouldn't hear the state's legal challenge.
