Idaho Constitution Amendment
Statement on the Legislative Council’s purpose, purpose and results to be achieved
Currently, the Legislature can meet in special session only at the Governor’s request. Under the amendment, Congress could call a special session if 60% of her members in each House petitioned the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House. The petition must identify the subjects to be addressed at the special session, and only those subjects may be considered during the special session.
The amendment also requires Congress to hold an organizing meeting in December following the general election. The purpose of an organizational session is to prepare for the next scheduled session. The proposed amendment would formalize in the Idaho Constitution the long-standing convention of Congress regarding convening and organizing legislatures.
“Amending Article 8, Section 3 of the Idaho Constitution, the Legislature shall convene a meeting of its organization beginning on the first Thursday in December after the General Election, unless a different date is specified by law. In a special session of the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives, within fifteen days of receipt of a joint petition of at least 60% of the members of each House, designate an agenda item for consideration. and that the legislative body shall not have the power to consider or pass any bills or resolutions on any subject other than those specified in the petition and necessary to provide for the expenses of the session in such special session. stipulate?”
