Idaho Legislature Adjourns
The Idaho Legislature adjourned November 17, ending the state’s longest-ever legislative session.
The House, in a unique political move, chose to go on an extended recess rather than adjourn to allow a return to session without being called back by the governor.
The three-day continuation focused on COVID-19 and the presidential mandates.
No bills were passed during the continuation, only a non-binding declaration stating opposition to President Biden’s vaccine requirements for federal workers, contractors, and large employers.
The House also censured Rep. Priscilla Giddings for her publicization of the name of the 19-year-old intern who reported she was raped by another legislator.
