Raybould: Hart’s personal tax case may be conflict with his service on Tax panel

Rep. Dell Raybould said, "What I think we ought to discuss here today, is whether his membership on the tax committee is a conflict because of his personal issue with the Tax Commission." He said the previous ruling of the committee that Hart didn't have a conflict of interest in his votes came because the votes referred to a class of people, but now the committee is looking at Hart's personal tax case - which doesn't affect anyone but him. Rep. Rich Wills, R-Glenns Ferry, said he agreed. Rep. Bert Stevenson added, "I do have some concern with the fact that he has served on the Rev & Tax Committee."
