Tax cut debate: ‘We’re not competitive’

Among comments in the tax cut debate so far:

Sen. Nicole LeFavour, D-Boise, said, “I guess I would look for a bill at this point in the session that creates jobs, and this one I don't think does. … I am really sorry to see that this is the bill we have at the end of the session.”

Senate President Pro-Tem Brent Hill, R-Rexburg: “The fact is we're not competitive in our income tax rates with our states right around us, and those are the ones we're competing with the most.” He said he sees the tax cuts, state savings, and restoring teacher salary-based apportionment as “a package deal.”

Sen. Elliot Werk, D-Boise: “In many instances, people will never know they got this,” because the small amount will be buried in people's tax returns.
