McGeachin Issues Executive Order Around Vaccine Mandates in Little’s Absence

Lieutenant Gov. Janice McGeachin

BOISE - Governor Brad Little departed on Tuesday, October 5 to visit the United States and Mexico border in Texas to talk about the ongoing crisis with nine other Governors. In his absence, Lieutenant Gov. Janice McGeachin has executive authority and used it Wednesday on the topic of vaccines and COVID testing. 

According to Idaho's Constitution, McGeachin has the full authority to do this as she is the Acting Governor within the state. She Tweeted earlier this morning;

"Today, as Acting Governor, I fixed Gov. Little's Executive Order on "vaccine passports" to make sure that K-12 schools and universities cannot require vaccinations OR require mandatory testing. I will continue to fight for your individual Liberty." 

Little soon followed with a response saying he would reverse the Lieutenant Governors' order as soon as he returns to the state. 

"I will be rescinding and reversing any actions taken by the Lt. Governor when I return," said Little.
