In a crowded elevator at Boise City Hall on the way up to the House Rev & Tax Committee’s hearing this morning, a well-dressed woman asked, “I assume we’re all going to the property tax hearing?” “I think that’s a good bet,” responded Dan John, tax policy manager for the Idaho State Tax Commission, who was wedged into the same elevator. At that, a young man wearing ID tags around his neck spoke up, saying, “I’m here to fix something.”
Rep. Bob Schaefer, R-Nampa, a member of the committee, responded with a mutter, “I don’t think we are.”
