House Revenue Committee approves Senate income tax rate bill
Friday, May 24, 2019
* The House Revenue Committee approved SB687 this morning, which is the Senate Democrats’ income tax rate bill that tweaked the governor’s proposed rates.
The bill passed on a partisan roll call. Democratic Reps. Sam Yingling and Jonathan Carroll were not present for the hearing and were replaced with substitute Dems. The two have said in the past that they opposed the graduated income tax proposal, but Carroll voted to send the constitutional amendment to the floor the other day. You’d think if they were still solidly against the governor’s plan they would’ve made it a point to attend today’s hearing.
