House Committee Killing Tax Bills Too

The House Rules Committee just effectively killed three bills by Rep. Brian Egolf, D- Santa Fe. One would have raises tobacco taxes, one would have raised alcohol taxes, one would have raised motor vehicle taxes.

It looks like a re-run of yesterday's Senate Committees Committee meeting. House Speaker Ben Lujan is leading the resistance to the bills, which are being supported by progressive Democrats.
