CAP ON CORPORATE TAXES

Paul Fogleman,

The Senate Finance Committee this week in a partisan vote approved a bill for a constitutional amendment to cap corporate income taxes at 5.5 percent. Most Democrats opposed the bill on the grounds that future legislatures would be limited in case of a state crisis. Last year a similar bill was defeated in the House after then State Treasurer Janet Cowell warned the state’s credit rating could be lowered.
