Speaker Change Announcement

Due to an unexpected personal emergency, Tammy Seley Elliott will not be able to serve as our keynote speaker at this year’s annual breakfast meeting. We wish her the best of luck and peace with her issues.

We are excited to announce that Susanna French, the President of the National Federation of Democratic Women, has agreed to serve as our keynote speaker. In 2017, Susanna was elected President after serving as 1st Vice President for two years. She also serves as Emerge KY Board Vice Chair, which trains women to run for office. She is a passionate advocate for women and believes that women have the power to do anything when we come together.

Medicaid Expansion Efforts

Speaking of Medicaid Expansion, there’s plenty you can do to remind lawmakers that they should respect the will of Idaho’s voters. There is a hearing on a bill on Friday morning at 8am in the Lincoln Auditorium at the Idaho State Capital building. This bill will add work requirements and other restrictions.
After overwhelmingly passing Medicaid Expansion via Prop. 2, Idaho's citizens deserve to see this law implemented as written. We need to keep up the pressure to ensure that the voter's will is obeyed and Medicaid expansion is implemented in a cost-effective way without sideboards. Call and email our legislators so that they know where we stand on Medicaid Expansion. They need to know that they ignore the voters at their peril.
