Eye On Boise

What a day

Rep. George Sayler, D-Coeur d’Alene, isn’t letting a little rain up north dampen his parade today: Today is his birthday, it’s the last day of school, and he’s now retired after a long teaching career. His summer, he said, “just got off to a great start.”

So what’ll he do now? “I’m going to have one job, and that’s going to be the Legislature, and not try to do two different things,” Sayler said. “I’ll get caught up around home, and do more reading, camping and bird watching, a little more of a normal lifestyle. And devote my time to the Legislature.”

In fact, even as he celebrated his big day, Sayler took time to talk with a reporter about an upcoming property tax interim committee meeting and what he’s been hearing from constituents about the property tax. “I think this is a long overdue effort,” he said. “You know, the Democratic Party has tried for three years in the Legislature to get some tax relief. … Now the majority party is finally on board, so I expect something to happen this next session.”
