Tax review a missed카지노 opportunity to tweak gstmt’s language,” said Republican Gov. Matt Bevin in a statement. “A better approach is to get rid of this unnecessary provision and start from scratch.”
A GST exemption was added after a vote of 71-1 in the General Assembly.
The measure was first introduced earlier this year, but lawmakers could not bring it to a vote after a veto threat from state Sen. Jim DeMint.
The measure now has 60 votes in favor, 44 votes against and one Republican vote.
