The House Rev & Tax Committee earlier rejected five of six proposed repeals of existing tax exemptions, but agreed to consider one, regarding vending machine sales. This morning, that one got killed too. There was a motion to pass the bill, but it failed, 3-13. Then, a motion to amend it failed, 6-10. Finally, the panel voted to hold the bill in committee, effectively killing it, on a voice vote.
