Senate Bill 1313 has been passed by the Idaho Senate and House.  It now moves on to the Governor's office for his consideration for signature.  

You can find information on the bill and its text here: https://legislature.idaho.gov/sessioninfo/2018/legislation/S1313/

The Board of ISRPA supports this bill.  The Board of the ISPRA reviewed the language in the bill and we found a few items where we might prefer improvements.  Overall, this is legislation that is beneficial for lawful self-defense and the defense of other innocent persons.  The new Castle Doctrine provisions will provide extended legal protection in defense of businesses, places of employment, and occupied automobiles in addition to homes.
