Tax Bills in B and I

The House Business & Industry Committee is scheduled today to hear a whole mess of tax bills.

Among those are:

* Rep. Brian Egolf's tax on cigarettes (HB35);

* Rep. Eleanor Chavez's bill to tax internet sales (HB50);

* House Speaker Ben Lujan's bill that would temporarily increase gross receipts taxes (HB119);

* Rep. Ray Begay's bill to close the loophole on out of state corporations doing business in the state (HB 62, which is similar to Sen. Peter Wirth's SB 90)

The meeting starts, supposedly, 30 minutes after the House floor session ends. (They're still in session at this writing)

UPDATE: 1:19 pm. The House just recessed.
