Some House Republicans plan a rally at the Statehouse in Boise today

 

Some Idaho lawmakers are hoping to call themselves back into session this week to take action against President Joe Biden’s recent vaccine mandate.

The group plans to hold a rally today on the steps of the Statehouse in Boise.

The Idaho Press reports, if enough House members are in attendance to provide a quorum, they hope to call themselves back into regular session.

The goal would be to pass legislation that bans any private businesses from requiring employees to get vaccinated against COVID-19.

You may recall, a small group of House members took similar steps last year, attempting to convene a special session to protest Gov. Brad Little’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic. Only about 15 lawmakers showed up.
