Lt. Governor McGeachin Issues Executive Order as Acting Governor on ‘Vaccine Passports,’ Modifying Little’s Previous Executive OrderBy Greg Pruett • October 5, 2021
Update at 4:22 p.m. MST on 10/5/2021: Governor Little posted the following comment on Twitter:
I will be rescinding and reversing any actions taken by the Lt. Governor when I return.
Original story below.
In Idaho, the Lieutenant Governor has the powers of a Governor when the Governor is out of state.
Lt. Governor Janice McGeachin did an Executive Order earlier this year while Governor Brad Little was out of the state and banned mask requirements by schools or local government agencies. Little rescinded the order once he returned to Idaho.
Today, while Little was with other governors at the U.S./Mexico border, McGeachin issued another Executive Order prohibiting K-12 schools and universities from requiring Covid-19 vaccines or testing which was an update to Little’s previous order banning state agencies from enacting vaccine passports.
Some individuals have questioned whether or not Little’s previous Executive Order would prohibit Boise State University from requiring either proof of Covid-19 vaccination or a negative test before entering its football games. However, BSU has since backed down from the requirement, stating that not enough tests are available in the area to make it a requirement for entry.
McGeachin posted on Facebook the following message along with a screenshot of her Executive Order:
Today, as Acting Governor, I fixed Gov. Little’s Executive Order on “vaccine passports” to make sure that K-12 schools and universities cannot require vaccinations OR require mandatory testing. I will continue to fight for your individual Liberty.Advertisement
Idaho Dispatch has reached out to Little’s office for comment, but we have not received a reply at this time.

Idaho need to make that lady the Governor and ditch brad she has way bigger butt grapes
Brad is a pink hat wearing p&ssie. I’m afraid of the damage he’ll do in the next year
Brads real name is Dick. He would screw over his grand ma for a nickel.
Executive Order No. 2021-13 is a needed Executive Order.
Thank you Lt. Governor Janice McGeachin stepping up to protect The People of Idaho.
You’re actions are appreciated.
Brad’s having a hissy fit.
She will need money….and lots of it.
Lt. Governor Janice McGeachin the Kristi Noem of Idaho!!!
Janice McGeachin has my vote in the next election for Governor.
This Republican will not vote for Janice, what a mess she is. We were screwed over by the party last time and they shoved Little. Raul Labador would have been a much better choice now we have this idiot but Janice is not any better just says she leans to the right. Dingy
Janice is representing Idaho. Brad is representing deep state, shadow gov, globalist, socialist, leftist puke. Brad and the libs are scared of Janice…they should be. She represents We The People.
Did you ever know that you’re my hero, youre everything i wish i could be. She’s awesome we need to remove the Rino Little
