Capitol Report with Rep. Joe Schmick

On this week’s Capitol Report, Rep. Joe Schmick discusses a procedural motion on the House Floor to pass a constitutional amendment that would require a supermajority approval of the Legislature to raise taxes.  The Republican lawmaker from Colfax, who calls legislators the custodian of the taxpayer’s money, says it is too easy to raise taxes.  With an amendment on the books, lawmakers would be more judicious and would be forced to comb the budget for ways to eliminate excess, rather than simply take the easy way out.
