Republican Legislators Endorse Tax Cuts for Families
(2008-01-25)
(APR - Alabama Public Radio ) - State Republicans representatives favor a tax cut for Alabama families making less than $100,000 a year and a plan to offer tax incentives to small businesses that offer health insurance to employees.

The minority party in the Alabama House says those are among their priorities for the upcoming session of the Legislature.

Both bills are also priorities of Republican Governor Bob Riley and were introduced in the last session of the Legislature. But neither passed. The bills are being sponsored by Representative Jay Love, a Montgomery Republican.

At a statehouse news conference Thursday, House Republicans released a list of 11 issues they said would be priorities in the session that begins February 5th.

Other priorities for Republicans include legislation requiring immigrants to prove legal residency before they receive public benefits, a bill mandating that public officials disclose public funds they receive through employment or contracts with public agencies, and a measure to strengthen Alabama's law requiring motorists to have liability insurance.
