Governor’s Housing Committee

The Governor's Housing Committee and Residence Fund were created by statute in 1995 (Idaho Code 67-455). The Fund was set-up for the purpose of providing a Governor's housing allowance and/or the acquisition, construction, remodel, furnishing, equipping, or maintaining a Governor's residence.

In 1999 the Legislature amended Idaho law to allow the Governor's Housing Committee to accept grants, gifts, or donations related to the acquisition, construction, remodel, furnishing, equipping or maintaining a Governor's residence. Further, the statute provides that the Committee may dispose of personal property held by the Committee. (Idaho Code 67-455A)


The five members of this legislative committee include:

  • Senator Chuck Winder, Chairman
  • Senator Maryanne Jordan
  • Representative Robert Anderst
  • Representative Melissa Wintrow
  • Robert L. Geddes, Director, Department of Administration


The Governor’s Housing Committee meets next on October 5, 2017, 2:30 p.m., Alexander House, 304 W. State Street, Boise, Idaho.
