The Idaho House took a step Tuesday toward limiting the governor’s authority and extending the legislature’s in managing emergencies, such as Covid.

The body voted 49-to-20 for a bill that requires the governor to terminate a disaster declaration as soon as he or she determines the immediate danger has passed.

The Idaho House on Friday said yes to some state regulation of vaping.

By a 38-32 vote, the chamber voted to treat vaping the same as smoking. That means retailers would have to secure permits to sell vape products. The bill also makes it illegal to sell those products to minors.
