Speaker Bosma announces House Republican Legislative Agenda
House Republicans have announced a five-point agenda for this year‘s legislative session which mirrors the priorities of Republican Governor Mike Pence.
After spending most of last year‘s session butting heads with the governor over his tax cut, House Republicans this year are on the same page, calling for expanded preschool for low-income students, road funding, job training, and elimination of the business personal property tax.
But Speaker Brian Bosma acknowledges there will be differences over details, with the clearest differences on the property tax.
Instead of the full phaseout Pence has proposed, House Republicans would give local governments the option of exempting new equipment from taxes.
