Reaction to Governor Robert Bentley's Tax Proposal
Bentley's revenue plan includes eight options totaling $541 million dollars.
The proposal includes AN 82.5 cent per pack cigarette tax increase and a raised sales tax on automobile purchases from two to four percent. Alabama House Representatives say they are prepared for a long, legislative session to work through these proposals for great results for the state.
"I think the legislature will take a hard look at each of the proposals and then from there we'll probably change some features of them and maybe come up with some different proposals so I think its going to be a long process over the legislative session," says Representative Steve Clouse.
Governor Bentley will make the proposal in the session that begins Tuesday.
