Local Question of the Day — 1/10/06

Issue: Gov. Dirk Kempthorne proposed (in his State of the State address) expanding the “circuit-breaker” property tax assistance program, which helps low-income elderly and disabled people, and adding a tax-deferral program. But he dubbed the property tax issue, overall, a local problem. “If citizens believe they are paying too much in property taxes, that debate belongs in the county courthouses and the city halls,” the governor told a joint session of the Legislature in his annual State of the State address.

Question: Is the governor full of beans on the property tax issue?
