Sources Says Special Interest Groups Are Pushing For A Reversal

UPDATE: The House rejected a reconsideration of HB 1182. HB 1182 will move on to the Senate. Update at 1:36 pm CST 2/17/17.

A member of the North Dakota House of Representatives just informed ND Watchdog Network‘s Dustin Gawrylow that there is an effort on the House floor today to reconsider and reverse the vote on House Bill 1182 which was passed yesterday.

Bill 1182 ends the income tax give-away in the Renaissance Zone Program. By eliminating these exemptions, it will reduce the impact to state taxpayers and still leave the local power of property taxes exemptions in place.

Because it barely passed the House, it will likely be a tough fight on the Senate side, says Gawrylow However, it could end up in another bill even if it does not pass on its own.

Gawrylow asks that you contact your legislators and tell them to defend the victory for tax fairness on HB 1182 and do not change their votes.
