Meeting tomorrow at 9 A.M., the Senate Tax, Business, and Transportation Committee will hear many bills, among them two economically destructive proposals. HB 291 is a tax hike that, even after being heavily amended, is still a bad idea. HB 20 is one of many paid sick leave mandates in the legislature this year. This bill has gotten the furthest through the process.
You can watch the meeting webcast here, or find the senator’s information here to send them your comments on these bills.
The Rio Grande Foundation has submitted testimony in opposition to HB 291 and HB 20.
