House Passes Shell Income Tax and Sales Tax Bills

September 19, 2007

In an effort to forestall a government shutdown, last night the House passed HB 5194 after deleting the reference to the 4.6% income tax hike and HB 5198 as a vehicle bill would provide the means for a use tax on services. Both bills are shell bills for whatever legislative leadership decides to do on revenues. By voting on the legislation Tuesday, the Senate can now act as early as Sunday on the House-originating bills.
