Nampa Solon Targets Urban Renewal

While other lawmakers are running legislation to put limits on urban renewal agencies, one lawmaker wants to pass a law completely removing authorization for them. Rep. Robert Schaefer, R-Nampa, introduced a bill Thursday in the House Local Government Committee that would entirely repeal Idaho’s urban renewal law and require debts incurred by the agencies be retired. This is the second time Schaefer has pushed a bill like this. He attempted it last year, but the measure didn’t make it out of committee. The Nampa Republican is pushing the bill to send more money back to school districts, highway agencies and fire departments/Dustin Hurst, Idaho Reporter. More here.

Question: Remember the good old days when Idaho Republicans supported improved infrastructure and community development?
