Grant calls on Sali to oppose tax bill

Democratic congressional candidate Larry Grant is calling on his GOP opponent, state Rep. Bill Sali, to vote against Gov. Jim Risch’s tax reform bill, which would cut property taxes and raise the sales tax. Grant favors the Democratic alternative plan, which would just trim property taxes for homeowners. “Mr. Sali prides himself on never having voted for a tax increase,” Grant said. “He has a chance, one last chance, as a state legislator to do it again.”

Sali hasn’t taken a position on the bill yet, but reportedly is leaning toward supporting it.
