Idaho Property Tax Updates

Updated December 2018

Election Update and Judicial Appointments

Idaho’s election results promise a continuation of current policies with Lt. Gov. Brad Little winning the governor race. The legislature, which convenes on January 7, 2019, will see more change given heavy turnover in legislative committee chairs. The new governor will give his first State of the State address that same day.

In 2018, Gov. C.L. “Butch” Otter made two appointments to the five-member state supreme court. On November 30, he appointed 7th District Court Judge Gregory Moeller from eastern Idaho to fill retiring Justice Joel Horton’s place. Earlier in the year he appointed 2nd District Court Judge John Stegner from Moscow to fill retiring Justice Warren Jones’s place. He has also appointed attorney Amanda Brailsford to the court of appeals to fill the upcoming vacancy created by the retirement of Judge Sergio Gutierrez at the end of the year. All three new appointees have significant experience in private practice.
