No movement on local-option bill

The Senate Local Government & Taxation Committee just met, but HB 688, the local-option tax enabling legislation, had disappeared from its agenda. Instead, the committee quickly passed HB 691, the replacement for the tax-deed sale legislation that Gov. Butch Otter vetoed earlier, and finished its meeting. Said Chairman Brent Hill, R-Rexburg, “We just don’t want to make any premature decisions until we see how everything fits together.” That would include HB 599a, the personal property tax repeal, on which Hill thought the House was going to vote this morning regarding concurrence or non-concurrence in the Senate amendments. But the House hasn’t yet taken that vote.
