Richardson Leaning Toward Vetoing Food Tax

That's what the Associated Press' Barry Massey is reporting. Barry's quoting Richardson spokesman Gilbert Gallegos.

There's no details on how the state would make up for the $68 million in revenue the food tax would provide.

There has been a legal question as to whether or not the governor could use his line-item veto power on the tax bill.

Meanwhile, the governor has scheduled a news conference tomorrow at 11:30 a.m. Tomorrow is the deadline for signing the budget and tax bills that came out of the special session of the Legislature.
