'We've heard everybody'

Senators have been chewing over a protest by Democrats about the nature of the narrow call for the special session. Earlier, in the Senate Local Government & Tax Committee, Sen. David Langhorst, D-Boise, said the lack of consideration for other property tax relief bills “makes this process a sham.” But committee Chairman Hal Bunderson, R-Meridian, responded, “At least as far as this committee’s concerned, we’ve heard everybody who chose to testify.”

In addition to allowing public testimony, Bunderson allowed Langhorst’s motion to amend the bill as Democrats wanted to, though it was voted down. A similar motion also was allowed in the House committee meeting this morning, but only two members of the public were allowed to testify there.
