Where Crapo, Kerry, Snowe and Wyden agree: Tax cut for craft beer

Idaho Sen. Mike Crapo is co-sponsoring bipartisan legislation - along with Sens. John Kerry, D-Mass., Olympia Snowe, R-Maine, and Ron Wyden, D-Ore. - to halve the federal excise taxes smaller craft breweries pay, a move his office says "would benefit Idaho brewers and farmers and could boost employment and commerce." The break for craft brewers also could boost ag products like hops and barley, Crapo said, along with production at growing craft breweries like Laughing Dog Brewery east of Sandpoint. On Monday, Crapo will visit and tour Laughing Dog and discuss the legislation.
