HB 95, exempting materials used in public roads from the sales tax at a cost to the state general fund of $20 million a year, died for lack of House concurrence in Senate amendments.
HB 18, banning urban renewal agencies from using eminent domain, died in committee in the House.
HB 32, the Idaho Fish & Game Departments’ “fee lock” bill, which would raise resident hunting and fishing license fees, but grandfather in current rates for anyone who loyally purchases one every year, died in committee in the House. Resident license fees haven’t increased since 2005. More here. Betsy Russell, EOB
Any surprises here?
