“Everyone at the Idaho Statehouse is expecting a final battle between two retiring political powerhouses — Gov. Dirk Kempthorne and House Speaker Bruce Newcomb. But as months of property tax debates around the state finally come to a head, two other key lawmakers may clash for their final time, too. Nampa Rep. Dolores Crow and Meridian Sen. Hal Bunderson each are stepping down this year. Crow is retiring after more than two decades in the House and Bunderson after his 13th session.”
Former representative Gary Ingram drew my attention to this fine piece by Greg Hahn/Idaho Statesman re: the legislative forces behind the Idaho property tax debate here.
