Welcome to our final Legislative Watch for the 2018 Idaho Legislative Session! Although the session has ended, we will continue to update you if any legislation comes up impacting nonprofits and the sector.

The Power of Advocacy
Idaho has many dedicated organizations and individuals supporting their communities. Sometimes, nonprofits - in order to advance their missions - have to stand up and advocate. Idaho’s nonprofit health clinics did just that to pass House Bill 513. This bill was signed into law by Governor Otter on March 19, 2018 and amends existing law to provide a sales tax exemption for the Idaho Association of Free and Charitable Clinics and its member clinics.
More resources will now go to families and clients of these caring nonprofits. Congratulations!
