Sales tax proposal clears House committee

Star-Telegram | 06/30/2005 | Sales tax proposal clears House committee: "Texans would pay the highest state sales tax in the country and would shell out more for bottled water, cigarettes and cars under a bill approved Wednesday by a House committee.

The legislation is designed to pay for an approximate 25 percent reduction in school property taxes over two years. It narrowly passed the tax-writing House Ways and Means Committee on a party-line, 5-4 vote, with all the Republicans voting yes and the Democrats voting no."
