BOISE, Idaho, Aug. 27, 2020—From Suzanne Budge, Idaho state director for NFIB, the state’s leading small-business association, after last night’s passage of House Bill 6, which now awaits the governor’s expected signature.

“I’m glad to see our state get on board with some of our neighboring states in giving our small-business owners some liability protection against COVID-19 lawsuits. House Bill 6 wasn’t where we started, and it isn’t a perfect bill by any means, but it is a step in the right direction to give businesses the confidence to re-open, re-hire, and restore Idaho’s economy. I want to thank again Gov. Brad Little for making this an agenda item in the special session and the Idaho Legislature for passing it. This was a huge step toward getting our economy moving again.”
