Lake: Taxes on online sales are 'not a new tax - this tax is owed'

The final panel at today's AP Legislative Preview is addressing revenue and budgeting. House Rev & Tax Chairman Dennis Lake said the question of taxation of online sales will come up again. "This is not a new tax - this tax is owed," he said, "and a lot of us are not paying it." Senate Finance Chairman Dean Cameron, R-Rupert, said, "This'll be my 20th year. I don't recall ever feeling more challenged than I feel coming into this session." Rep. Wendy Jaquet, D-Ketchum, said, "My priority is investing in education," which she called the "real driver" of economic growth.
