BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Gov. C.L. "Butch" Otter says that he has no plans to introduce a tax cut proposal to the Idaho Legislature in 2017.

Speaking Wednesday at the Associated Taxpayers of Idaho annual conference in Boise, Otter said he plans to focus on education as his top priority during the upcoming legislative session. However, Otter added he's open to considering tax cut proposals that make it through the GOP-dominated Legislature.

The Spokesman-Review (http://bit.ly/2fSk8Dv ) reports that Idaho is currently in the middle of implementing a five-year plan to boost teacher pay. The third installment is estimated to cost $58 million next year.

Otter won't unveil his final plans until his annual State of the State speech on Jan. 9.
