Idaho Lawmakers to Change Job Creation Bill

Benito Baeza

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Legislators say they’ll change a tax bill before trying it again on the Senate floor, after the attorney general’s office said it might leave Idaho on constitutionally shaky ground. The bill, which would give up to 30 percent in tax incentives to job-creating businesses, cleared the Senate 29-6 Monday. But that was before Deputy Attorney General Chelsea Kidney released an opinion that giving a seven-member board the final word on who gets tax breaks could result in unequal treatment of identical businesses. Majority Leader Sen. Bart Davis asked his fellow senators to reconsider the bill, effectively undoing Monday’s vote. Its sponsors will amend it before it is debated on the floor again. If the bill clears the Senate a second time, it goes to the governor’s desk for signing.
