2007 House Bill 5198

House Roll Call 372: Passed

To exempt disabled veterans from the state 6 percent use tax. The bill was passed and sent to the Senate as a "vehicle" for a possible tax on some services, but without that actual provision. This was done because bills must "lay over" in the other body for at least five days before being voted on, and if a tax increase is to be approved by Oct. 1 it is necessary to have a "vehicle" bill that has done so.
