Otter's 'Veto' Stamp Gets A Workout

The vetoing continued yesterday for Idaho Gov. Butch Otter. He vetoed a total of 25 bills on Tuesday, after House overwhelmingly killed his transportation plan.

Earlier in the day Otter had hinted that the vetoing would continue until his transportation bill was passed. It passed the senate early in the day, only to be killed by the House later. Here's the story.

In the meantime, one of the bloggers on the Spokesman-Review's 'Huckleberries' blog did the math for his personal household and found that the tax Otter is proposing would add up to less than $5 a month for the two drivers in his home. The blog is taking an informal poll on how it would affect you. Voice your opinion here.
