Rep. Lynn Luker Presents Four Bills Today

It was a busy day at the capitol for me today. In addition to attending the State Affairs committee and floor session, I present four bills which were passed on to the House Floor. The first two were in the Revenue & Tax Committee. HB593 places some limitations on the CID taxing district law enacted in 2007. Those limitations will protect property owners. HB591 restores personal property rights in unclaimed property where the owner’s identity is known but whose location is not. Currently, Idaho is one of only two states which irrevocably keep the property. HB 496 exempts members of the armed forces and veterans from hunters education requirements. HB 573 allows state employees to voluntarily opt out of group insurance, and instead set up a Health Savings Account with a high deductible policy. The state would place the difference in cost into the employee’s HSA. That bill is co sponsored with Rep. Steve Thayne, and will encourage more consumer involvement in controlling medical expenses and provide more flexibility in choosing insurance coverage.
