Thursday, the Idaho Senate passed Governor Butch Otter’s massive tax cut bill on a vote of 26-9. It had already passed the House and now just needs Otter's signature to become law. The bill cut taxes for some in Idaho and creates a $130 dollar child tax credit.
Boise State Political Science Professor Gary Moncrief tells Samantha Wright the tax cut vote comes as the legislature continues to go full speed ahead.
