Bills to end grocery tax all but dead

Posted: Updated:
MONTGOMERY - AL -

 

The effort to remove the state sales tax from groceries is likely dead for another year.
Republican Sen. Gerald Dial of Lineville got a Senate committee to approve his bill to phase out the 4 percent state tax, but he said it is unlikely he can pass it with only five meeting days remaining in the legislative session. Democratic Rep. John Knight of Montgomery introduced a bill to remove the tax, but it never got brought up for a vote.
Jim Carnes of the Alabama Arise organization that represents Alabama's poor says the grocery tax issue appears dead for this session of the Legislature.
