House Tax Chairman Dennis Lake, R-Blackfoot, in whose committee all tax legislation generally starts, told Eye on Boise today, “I am absolutely amazed at the lack of bills in this committee this year.” Reflecting for a moment on the state’s budget crunch, he added, “Then again, we can’t do exemptions, we can’t do credits, we can’t do deductions - that’s what this committee does, is all the giveaway stuff.”
