Risch, Opponents Lock Horns On 'Tax Cut'

Item: Risch claims his special session produced biggest tax cut, opponents say that's bogus/Heath Druzin, Idaho Statesman

More Info: Risch has made the one-day special session the cornerstone of his whirlwind 7-month tenure as governor. ... The Legislature eliminated the $260 million property tax for school maintenance and operations and boosted the sales tax to 6 percent from 5 percent, raising $219 million. Lawmakers used surplus money to cover the shortfall.

Question: Tax cut? Or tax shift? Do you support the move by legislators to raise the sales tax a penny and remove school maintenance costs from the property tax?
