5/11/2015 Group Watch: Republican Revenue Plan

The House Republican Caucus in the Alabama House of Representatives proposed raising taxes on cigarettes, car titles and car rentals as part of a plan to fix the state budget. The overall plan calls for $200 million in revenue increases and cost reductions. Senate President Pro Tem Del Marsh has proposed a lottery and expanded gaming at the state’s four greyhound tracks. Twenty-two members of the house Republican caucus introduced legislation to make it illegal for a gambling interest, or a person acting on behalf of a gambling interest, to make campaign contributions to a person running for elective office.
