Also signed without comment: HB 524, animal cruelty legislation regarding “companion animals;” HB 495, expunging first-time minor-in-possession or minor-in-consumption offenses for those who don’t reoffend; and HB 512, establishing trustee zones for community college elections.
Otter held a formal bill-signing ceremony yesterday for HB 504, legislation that’s been years in the works to reform Idaho’s public defense system.
