Idaho Gov. Little vetos 2 bills that would trim governor’s emergency powers

BOISE, Idaho — On Friday afternoon, all of Idaho’s living governors showed a united front behind Gov. Brad Little vetoing two bills that would trim an Idaho governor’s powers during an emergency while expanding the legislature’s.


In a brief press conference, Gov. Little was joined by former Republican Idaho governors C.L. “Butch” Otter and Dirk Kempthorne, who both made statements explaining why they think vetoing House Bill 135 and Senate Bill 1136 is the right decision.
