The IAC Legislative Committee met in downtown Boise on November 3 to discuss and determine policy priorities for the upcoming legislative session. The eight policies up for consideration were proposed by various IAC committees and were debated and voted on by the full membership at the IAC annual conference in September.
The Legislative Committee was then tasked with considering each of the proposed policies and deciding on the final policy priorities at their recent meeting. Up to five policies were allowed to pass as priorities for the upcoming legislative session.
Of the potential policies, one theme quickly rose to the forefront of county priorities: property tax relief. The Legislative Committee agreed that property tax relief aligns with every priority in the IAC Legislative Package.
IAC executive director Seth Grigg voiced his support for prioritizing property tax relief, as it is ripe for discussion being a topic of interest across the state.
“It’s our desire and intention to collaborate with our partners and stakeholders to advance sound policies, especially when it comes to something as important and impactful as property tax relief,” said Grigg.
As per IAC by-laws, a formal document will be sent to the membership highlighting the full list of decided policy priorities in coming days.
