Utah Senate Approves $100 Million Tax Cut

Utah Senate Approves $100 Million Tax Cut

The Trib: "Senate leaders said they will not consider completely eliminating the tax on food, because the $166 million loss in revenue would make it impossible to meet other critical state needs."

Yesterday's Trib: . . . Senate Republicans balk at complete removal of the grocery tax. "We would rather look in other areas," said Senate Majority Leader Pete Knudson. "The Senate is solidly where we have been for a long time," Knudson said, adding the food tax removal "creates more problems than it solves." Hillyard said a food tax removal or a tax cut over $100 million would severely limit money available for other needs.

"At $100 million, that's the largest tax cut we've ever seen in this state. We're really concerned about the funding of education and funding our roads. We're concerned if we try to take larger tax cuts, we're not going to be able to adequately fund those sort of things," Valentine said.
