Kelso: 'Issue was raised by Mr. Hart'

Rep. Wendy Jaquet, D-Ketchum, questioned Starr Kelso, Rep. Phil Hart's attorney, about why he submitted legal documents to the state in Hart's tax appeal stating that the issue of legislative privilege was "being considered by legislative leaders," and whether Kelso sought that consideration, whether it occurred during a legislative session, and what form it took. Kelso said, "The issue was raised by Mr. Hart to, I believe, the speaker. We were waiting for the response. To my knowledge, there really was no response."
