YES, this is good for Idaho Children
HB313 - The purpose of this legislation is for all public schools and public charter schools to require
feminine hygiene products, free of charge, to all female students in sixth through twelfth grades.
We need to give all Idaho students the best opportunity to learn and thrive. One in four students
who menstruate experienced period poverty in 2021 (up from 1 in 5 in 2019).
We know that without period products, these students are more likely to miss school. Before the
pandemic four in five teens reported having either have missed class time, or knew a classmate who
missed class time because they did not have access to period products.
This legislation will make period products available, for free to all students in 6 – 12th grades.
