Governors Tax Plan will get Senate Vote

23 Feb 2017 4:09 PM | Anonymous


Today, the House Taxation Committee met at the rail during a break in order to pass HB 2315 - the Governor's Tax Plan including the liquor enforcement tax increase to 16% - out of committee "without recommendation".  That moves the bill to the full House.  Read the Chairman's statement here.  When a bill is referred "without recommendation", it means the committee does not recommend the bill, but there is a desire to have the full chamber vote on it.

The Senate Assessment and Taxation Committee has also sent SB 175 - their version of the Governor's Tax Plan to the full Senate.

The House committee also crafted a new income tax bill similar to HB 2178, except that it includes only two income tax brackets.  The new bill, HB 2370, was passed by the committee and recommended favorably for passage to the full House.

We do not know if these bills will be rushed to action today.

The Legislature plans to adjourn today for a week long break, to return March 6.
