Moyle: Tax cut might not be ‘doable’ this year

In comments earlier this morning at the AP legislative preview, House Majority Leader Mike Moyle, R-Star, appeared to back off from a proposal he's put forth to phase in big tax cuts, starting this year, by reducing Idaho's individual and corporate income tax rates. With the revenue numbers, Moyle said, "We don't know ... if that's going to be doable." He added, "But it's still something we would like to look at. ... We'd like to do something to spur the economy."

House Speaker Lawerence Denney said, "I think that that bill will be introduced and I think that there will probably be a very lively discussion about it." Responded House Minority Leader John Rusche, "I think it's irresponsible."
