Idaho GOP Governor Butch Otter Signs Historic $200 Million Tax Cut Into Law

Governor Otter’s commitment to returning money back to the taxpayers shows why he remains popular in his state.

The RGA writes:

Idaho Republican Governor Butch Otter has delivered on his promise to pass tax relief for Idahoans.

Last week, Otter signed into law a $200 million tax cut, representing “one of the largest” tax reductions “in Idaho’s history.” The new law will make Idaho more competitive for business, while slashing income taxes and creating a child tax credit for working families.

Governor Otter’s commitment to returning money back to the taxpayers shows why he remains popular in his state, and stands in stark contrast to the current Democrats vying to replace him.
