Under current guidance from local authorities, residential construction, and its extended and contract workforce, are deemed to be providing essential infrastructure services under Executive Order N-33-20 issued by Idaho Governor Little on March 25, 2020 and as set forth in the State Public Health Officer's list of "Essential Critical Infrastructure Workers" dated March 20, 2020. Therefore, our understanding is that the complete home ownership life cycle, from construction of housing, to selling, to servicing are covered by this Executive Order.
The Idaho Senate adjourned sine die on Wednesday, May 12th after 122 days in session, making it the longest session in Idaho history. There were plenty of bills this year with over 900 pieces of legislation drafted and 628 bills introduced. In addition to having higher than average bill production, there were also a significant number of bills introduced at the tail end of session.
