Governor's tax plan passes House

HUTCHINSON: His tax cut plan sails through the House.
  • HUTCHINSON: His tax cut plan sails through the House.
The House today passed a bill that would implement Governor Asa Hutchinson's proposed $50 million tax cut, which lowers the tax rate for those earning less than $21,000 in income. The measure passed 90-2, with five voting present. It's on to the Senate.

An alternative $40 million earned income tax credit proposal proposed by Rep. Warwick Sabin, which would provide more targeted relief for low-income workers, was passed over today. (Sabin voted Yea on Hutchinson's bill today.)

Strange bedfellows: Democratic Rep. John Walker and Republican Rep. Josh Miller voted Nay.

Five other Democrats, all members of the Legislative Black Caucus, voted present: Allen, Blake, Flowers, Love, and Nicks.
