Some democratic senators have proposed a five percent sales tax -- that they say would raise 1.8 billion per biennium.

 

Republican Representative Mike McLane doesn't support the bill, but is willing to listen.

 

"The proposed sales tax increase has the effect of raising taxes 1.8 billion dollars in the biennium.  But it doesn't do away with income taxes or property taxes.  It  clearly is a significant tax increase."

 

Supporters of the bill believe a sales tax would help with the state's revenue drop during tough economic times.
