Eye On Boise

Would we head for the ocean?

Rep. Ken Roberts, R-Donnelly, had a quick comeback to Judith Brown of the Idaho Center on Budget and Tax Policy, when she told lawmakers this morning that Idaho actually ranks low compared to other states in local government spending, and therefore shouldn’t further limit local government spending in its effort to provide property tax relief. “In terms of total local spending, Idaho ranks 35th out of the states,” Brown told the Rev & Tax Committee.

Roberts responded, “I wonder, if all the states decided to move out in the middle of the ocean, would we follow suit because that’s what the majority of states decided to do?”
