From The Desk Of The Idaho Governor March 2, 2022

Empowering Parents grants “Leading Idaho” bill signed into law

I signed Senate Bill 1255 into law Tuesday, putting $50 million toward the new “Empowering Parents” grants. The grants are a key part of my “Leading Idaho” plan for record investments in families and education.
The Empowering Parents grants reinforce this fact – a person’s education starts in the home. Parents are in the driver’s seat, as they should be and always will be in Idaho. The Empowering Parents grants put families in control of their child’s education and helps set them up for success.

Republican Governors comment on Biden’s State of the Union address
I joined 23 other Republican Governors in a statement commenting on President Joe Biden’s State of the Union address: 
Joe Biden ran on promises of uniting the country and restoring America’s respect throughout the world. Instead, one year into his Administration, we have witnessed complete failure on both fronts. 
As opposed to what is happening in Washington, or rather not happening, Republican governors are defending our principles and delivering results. 
The Biden Administration should take note of the successful leadership of Republican governors across America who are getting people back to work, standing up for law enforcement to keep our communities safe, and putting their trust in people, not government.

Washington lawmakers pump the brakes on gas tax after pressure from Idaho’s leaders, neighbors
Attorney General Lawrence Wasden and I sent a letter to Washington Governor Jay Inslee calling on him to step in and stop Washington’s dangerous proposals to increase the cost of fuel for Idahoans.
Now, the AP reports, a top Democrat in the Washington Legislature is pulling support of the proposed tax on fuel exported from the state’s five refineries.
I commend those in the Washington government for hearing our concerns and changing course.
