Governor says no to limiting emergency power
Last Friday, Governor Little had a press conference announcing that he will be vetoing two bills that were sitting on his desk: House Bill 135 and Senate Bill 1136. Both were about limiting the Governor’s powers during an emergency.
Naturally, Governor Little is against any limitations of power, even though we’re still *technically* in Stage 3 of the Idaho Reopening Plan. (is that still a thing?). Little trotted out past Idaho governors who agreed with him that the governorship needs ultimate power, and continually applauded Little on how he’s handled “these unprecedented” times.
