Rep. Dodie Horton on Ways and Means Impasse [VIDEO]
State Rep. Dodie Horton from Haughton talks with 101.7 / 710 KEEL's Robert J Wright and Erin McCarty about the latest House Ways and Means committee meetings, which seem to be, so far, without a solution to the state's budget shortfall.
Horton tells KEEL listeners that negotiations will continue regarding the replacement of the temporary penny sales tax that goes off the books July 1, including a quarter penny tax that would go directly to the funding of the state's TOPS scholarships program, but, she adds, to this point, the only tax proposals would go to the state's general fund, which she says she opposes.
Horton also says she will continue to oppose any revenue proposal that "will take away money from...the middle class," likening those measures as resurrections of the highly unpopular - and eliminated - Stelly tax plan.
