State lawmakers return to the capitol today, starting another week of negotiations within the Republican party over how much to cut state income taxes.
The GOP-controlled House and Senate last week unveiled updated and competing tax plans.
House members call their tax cut bill “significant but responsible,” while the Senate’s is, in their words “bold but prudent.”
Under the House bill, the average individual income tax cut would reach nearly 9 percent. The bill would cost $1.3 billion over five years.
