(BOISE, ID)  —  The state Senate has signed off on a bill that would keep counties from taxing tribal government land on all five of Idaho ‘s Indian reservations. Caldwell Republican Sen. Jim Rice praised the measure, saying it was something that should’ve happened long ago. Supporters argued that the bill gives the same exemptions to tribal government land that other government agencies have across the state. The bill is projected to save the tribes around $303,000 annually. It now heads to Gov. Butch Otter’s desk for approval.
