IFF’s Hoffman calls for tax cuts

Wayne Hoffman, head of the Idaho Freedom Foundation, issued his own version of a state budget for the coming year today, calling for limiting state spending to a 2.6 percent increase and cutting taxes by $100 million to $200 million. “The budget we’re putting out today is a starting point,” Hoffman said. “We’d like to see a month-long conversation, even before the governor releases his budget in January, on what the state’s priorities are and how to get there. The priority should be providing tax relief to Idahoans, adequately funding state services, and doing what’s right for Idaho in a way that’s conservative and fiscally responsible”/Wayne Hoffman, Idaho Freedom Foundation.
