Nate, Zollinger say Otter missed veto deadline on grocery tax bill, threaten to sue

Two eastern Idaho state representatives and a former GOP congressional candidate are threatening to sue to overturn Gov. Butch Otter’s veto of the grocery tax repeal bill, contending it occurred after the deadline and the bill actually became law without Otter’s signature, reports Melissa Davlin of Idaho Public Television. You can read Davlin’s full report here on her “Idaho Reports” blog. The AP has a full story here.

Reps. Bryan Zollinger, R-Idaho Falls, and Ron  Nate, R-Rexburg, joined former congressional candidate Bryan Smith to announce their action Wednesday morning; they’re calling on Idaho Secretary of State Lawerence Denney not to recognize the veto.
