Orders

In 2020, Governor Brad Little signed Executive Order 2020-02: Transparency in Agency Guidance Documents, requiring written final orders to be posted on a single webpage. This executive order states:

“By December 31, 2020, any written final orders that an agency intends to rely upon as precedent must be posted on the agency’s website on a single webpage, organized by subject, and with a direct link to the final order.”

Executive Order 2020-02: Transparency in Agency Guidance Documents

The orders included on this page are the written resolution of cases that have been adjudicated in a hearing. These orders are relied upon as precedent by the agency. In other words, these are the administrative orders of the Idaho Department of Lands.
