Idaho Governor Brad Little Promises To Reverse Executive Order Issue By Lt. Governor Janice

Idaho Governor Brad Little and Janice are from the same party but are constantly taking stances against each other. Little revealed that the Lt. Governor did not take his permission before issuing the executive order. He vowed to reverse any such decision made by Janice on his return from Texas. Furthermore, he said, “I am in Texas performing my duties as the duly elected Governor of Idaho, and I have not authorized the Lt. Governor to act on my behalf. I will be rescinding and reversing any actions taken by the Lt. Governor when I return.”
