Vick Wants To Bring Back 2/3s Tax Bill

Here's a link to Betsy Russell's full story at spokesman.com on the failure today of freshman North Idaho Sen. Steve Vick's proposed constitutional amendment to require two-thirds votes not only for any tax increase, but also for any fee hike or the removal or reduction of any tax break. The measure, HJR 1, actually got a bare majority - 37-33 - but not the required two-thirds. If he's re-elected, Vick said, “I do plan on bringing it back in the future.” More Eye On Boise here.

Question: Do you consider Senate District 3 Sen. Vick to be as radical as district mates Rep. Phil Hart and Rep. Vito Barbieri?
