Vick’s 2/3s Vote Tax Bill Stalls

After much discussion and debate, the House State Affairs Committee has voted to hold off on passing HJR 1, Sen. Steve Vick's measure to amend the Idaho Constitution to require a two-thirds vote of the House and Senate for any tax or fee increase; committee members want to work on amendments.  Several committee members, including Rep. Lynn Luker, R-Boise, advocated doing away with the “net increase” wording Vick included in the measure/Betsy Russell, Eye On Boise. More here.

Question: Do you support a two-thirds vote requirement for the Idaho Legislature to pass bills that increase taxes?
