Alex LaBeau, president of the Idaho Association of Commerce and Industry, sits in the Capitol in Boise Thursday, Feb. 28, 2013 where he’s trying to convince lawmakers to repeal the state’s century-old personal property tax on business equipment. Gov. C.L. “Butch” Otter has made repeal a priority of the 2013 session, but an initial draft proposal circulated among lawmakers got unfavorable treatment from counties, cities and public school officials. LaBeau is helping Otter’s administration with a new draft.
