A bill has been introduced into the legislature to "help" Boise County pay the lawsuit judgement. This legislation would allow the commissioners to tax us WITHOUT a vote of the people. A bond by Boise County would need to be voted in by 2/3 of the residents voting. This legislation is not necessary, can be used by any taxing district in Idaho, and is without a sunset clause.
