Idaho Jobs Bill Headed back to Governor’s Desk after Fix

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — An Idaho tax incentive bill is again bound for the governor’s desk after sponsors say they’ve addressed concerns from the attorney general’s office. The bill, which would give up to 30 percent in tax incentives to job-creating businesses, already passed the Senate Monday. But Senate leaders called for a revote after the attorney general’s office released an opinion saying it could leave Idaho on constitutionally shaky ground. That’s because the original measure gave a seven-member board the final decision on who gets tax breaks, with no option to appeal — something sponsors say they fixed in an amendment before the second vote. The change allows applicants who feel they’ve been treated unfairly to ask for a review. Gov. C.L. “Butch” Otter will now decide whether to make the bill law.
