Idaho state officials say they want to move quickly on projects that reduce phosphorus pollution in Lake Coeur d’Alene. Phosphorus promotes the growth of plants that can be toxic to humans and animals.

An advisory committee appointed by the governor to vet and choose proposals began its work Thursday in Coeur d’Alene.
