Bladderpods pushing farmers off their land

FRANKLIN COUNTY, Wash. - A flower is wreaking havoc on Franklin County farmers.

It's got a funny name but growers don't find anything funny about the White Bluffs Bladderpod.

It's now made the endagered list by the US Fish and Wildlife Service. The flower only grows near Hanford and in parts of Franklin County.

More than 100 farmers packed a Franklin County courtroom today. They're worried land-use changes will be forced on them or even part of their land claimed.

Franklin County Commissioners voted to hire an attorney and sue the feds.

Their goal would be to open the public comments period on land changes.
