Idaho Job Creation Bill At Governor’s Desk, Attorney General Questions It

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Senators voted Monday to send a tax incentive measure to the governor’s office for signing — but it’s not a done deal yet. An Attorney General’s Office opinion issued shortly after the vote says the bill could leave Idaho in a “constitutionally vulnerable” spot. That’s because the bill — which would give up to 30 percent in tax incentives to job-creating businesses — gives a seven-member board the final word on who gets those breaks, with no option to appeal the decisions. According to Deputy Attorney General Chelsea Kidney, that means identical applicants could receive different rates based on their ability to negotiate. Majority Leader Sen. Bart Davis made a notice of reconsideration that allows him to call for a do-over of the vote in the Senate tomorrow.
