Rep. Mark Patterson, R-Boise, spoke out in favor of HB 315, the business personal property tax relief bill. He decried Idaho’s low rates of personal income compared to other states. “We’re rotting on the vine,” Patterson said. “Something isn’t right, and it’s our taxing policies. … This is policy we need to start moving Idaho in the right direction, to give this state star quality so we can get people to move here with their businesses.“
