Olson, Luna address revenue for schools

Reporter panelist Bill Roberts of the Idaho Statesman asked the two candidates if they'd support more revenue to spare schools from additional cuts next year. Olson said, "Before we spend the next dollar, we've got to ... define a thorough system of education. ... We keep getting an 11th-hour version of what that is." Luna said he'd support taxing online sales, and "make sure that our Tax Commission has the right amount of tax collectors," which he said would "immediately increase our tax revenue considerably and begin to provide more and more money for education."
