Sen. Jeff Siddoway, R-Terreton, the chairman of the Senate Local Government & Taxation Committee, has opened up public testimony on HB 315, the counties personal property tax relief, but he warned first that there’s dinner and coconut cream pie on the 4thfloor that’s calling to senators on the committee. “As I look through the agenda here, there are no con’s, everyone’s a pro, so don’t blow this,” Siddoway said to laughter.
Among those testifying in support are representatives of the Idaho Association of Counties, the Idaho School Boards Association, the Idaho Association of School Administrators, the Boise Metro Chamber of Commerce and others.
