The Spokesman-Review

Reps. Ilana Rubel, Lauren Necochea and Sally Toone: Our property tax crisis requires solutions, not scapegoats!

We could not believe our eyes when we read a recent op-ed from Idaho House GOP leadership scapegoating local government for the property tax crisis created by GOP legislators themselves. We must set the record straight. While it may be county officials mailing you the bill, don’t blame the messengers. The jaw-dropping number on that bill is not due to excessive spending by local government – it’s due to disastrous policy enacted by GOP legislators.
