Attempt to Remove Grocery Tax Fails

A bill that would take the 4 percent state sales tax off groceries failed to get enough votes to get beyond the budget isolation resolution and move on to a full vote for passage.

State Rep. John Knight, D-Montgomery, once again sponsored the bill. He thanked those who voted for the bill, but chastised those who couldn't. He said he didn't have much to say, but he would be back.
