BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Legislation for Idaho’s biggest tax cut in state history headed Tuesday to the governor for his signature.
The Senate voted 27-7 with no Democratic support to approve the record $600 million cut that includes a one-time $350 million in rebates and $250 million in permanent income tax reductions going forward for people and businesses.
Republican Gov. Brad Little has twice sent his budget chief to testify on the bill’s behalf at committee meetings in the House and Senate to indicate his support.
“Tax relief is on the way!” Little tweeted within minutes of the Senate vote. “Thank you to the Idaho Senate for passing a historic tax cut for Idahoans!”
