Grocery tax bills coming

House Tax Chairman Dennis Lake, R-Blackfoot, says he hasn’t been buried in grocery tax relief proposals, after asking all lawmakers to get him their proposed bills by today. He has Gov. Butch Otter’s bill in hand, and a couple others. “We’ll be having the print hearing middle part of next week, on all the bills we have,” Lake said. “My current expectation is there will be three or four.” He added, “It’ll be interesting, but it’s not going to be as complicated as I thought it would be originally. There’s not that many different ideas out there.”
