Today, the House Revenue and Taxation Committee will vote on a bill to allow the Treasure Valley to pursue a local sales tax for public transit.

If they value a conservative but responsive tax code, they'll vote yes.
If they mean what they say about local control, they'll vote yes.
Read more here. I'm heading back to the Statehouse in an hour or so for the conclusion of yesterday's hearing and the vote. I'll report more later.
