Idaho Governor to Call Special Session Amid Pandemic
Gov. Brad Little stated Wednesday he will call the part-time Legislature back into a special session during the week of August 24 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The special session could include how to conduct the November general election amid the pandemic.
Also a topic of discussion is legislation creating a liability shield for protection against lawsuits during declared emergencies such as the pandemic.
How a special session would work during the pandemic and how much it would cost is unclear.
Lawmakers would have to be in the Statehouse in Boise for their votes to count.
