New and altered laws take effect in Idaho
BOISE, Idaho (AP) — A law lowering from 21 to 18 the age limit for carrying a concealed handgun within city limits in Idaho without a permit or training has gone into effect.
The law passed by Idaho lawmakers and signed by Republican Gov. Brad Little taking effect Monday aligns gun laws in urban areas with rural areas where those 18 and older can already carry a concealed handgun.
That's one of more than 300 new or amended laws passed by lawmakers earlier this year.
Another new law requires motorists to slow down and move over when approaching tow trucks and maintenance vehicles parked along roadways with lights flashing.
Lawmakers also increased fines for motorists unlawfully passing a loading or unloading school bus, with fines up to $1,000 for each consecutive offense.
