Idaho Gov. Brad Little (R) signed legislation Thursday that will ban boys who identify as girls from using girls’ restrooms in public schools. The bill will ban students in Idaho from using restrooms that do not correspond with their sex. Senate Bill 1100 takes effect on July 1st and will require public schools to provide sex-specific bathrooms, locker rooms, dressing areas, showers, and overnight accommodations. “Requiring students to share restrooms and changing facilities with members of the opposite biological sex generates potential embarrassment, shame, and psychological injury to students,” the bill states. Students will soon be able to take legal action against schools if they allow people to use facilities that do not correspond to their sex, or if they fail to take “reasonable steps” to prevent students from using facilities not corresponding to their sex. Republican State Rep. Ted Hill, who sponsored the bill, explained his support for the … [Read more...] about Idaho Governor Signs Legislation Banning Boys from Girls’ Restrooms

WATCH: Ron DeSantis Signs School Choice Legislation, Expanding It to ‘Every Single Student’ in Florida
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) signed key educational legislation on Monday, expanding school choice to “every single student in the state of Florida.” Speaking at Miami’s Christopher Columbus High School, DeSantis announced the benefits of the historic legislation, which would expand school choice to every child in the state. “It does that by eliminating the current financial eligibility restrictions and allowing any student who is a resident of Florida and is eligible to enroll in K-12 to participate in school choice scholarships,” he said, noting that there will be a “preference for low and middle income families.” “But at the end of the day, we believe that the money should follow the student and it should be directed based on what the parent thinks is the most appropriate education program for their child,” the governor said, further explaining that the measure also eliminates the “current enrollment cap and the exemptions to the maximum number of students who can … [Read more...] about WATCH: Ron DeSantis Signs School Choice Legislation, Expanding It to ‘Every Single Student’ in Florida
Idaho Gov. Signs Bill Legalizing Execution By Firing Squad
Idaho Gov. Brad Little (R) signed legislation over the weekend legalizing the use of firing squads to carry out execution sentences in his state. On the morning of Friday, March 24, 2023, Breitbart News reported Idaho was on the cusp of becoming the fifth state to legalize execution by firing squad, and later that day Little signed the legislation. The Associated Press noted that Idaho turned to firing squads because the companies that make drugs for lethal injections do not want their products used in executions. This has made the drugs hard to acquire and “one Idaho death row inmate has already had his execution postponed repeatedly because of drug scarcity.” Some states are looking to electric chairs in the absence of lethal drugs, but Idaho, Mississippi, Utah, Oklahoma, and South Carolina, have all legalized firing squads as an option.

Where’s the Urgency on the Adderall Shortage?
Photo-Illustration: Intelligencer; Photo: Jenny Kane/AP/Shutterstock Over the past several months, a severe shortage of Adderall and similar medications has wreaked havoc on the lives of ADHD sufferers, children, and adults alike. There are many factors behind the rolling crisis, including manufacturing issues and increased drug demand. But Dr. David Goodman, director of the Adult Attention Deficit Disorder Center of Maryland, believes that one reason for the shortage’s persistence — or at least the sluggishness in addressing it — is the widespread public misapprehension of ADHD as a mild condition. I spoke with Goodman, who along with treating patients consults with several pharmaceutical companies on products in the ADHD arena, about the medicine shortage and its ramifications. The FDA announced this shortage back in October, citing manufacturing delays. Now we’re in late March, and people who take the drug are still having a lot of trouble finding it. Do you have … [Read more...] about Where’s the Urgency on the Adderall Shortage?
