Southern lawmakers seeing northern light

Senate President Pro Tem Bob Geddes told a Coeur d’Alene audience today that legislators from the southern part of the state have learned lessons about property taxes from their North Idaho counterparts. “Your northern Idaho legislators did a tremendous job last session to bring this to our attention, and sometimes it takes some of us a little longer to catch on,” he said with a rueful smile at Sen. Shawn Keough, R-Sandpoint. “Where I live in southern Idaho … we are now starting to see some of the same problems that you’ve faced for a long time.”
