Tax Cut Passes
February 13, 1997

State Capital Bureau
The House crossed party lines and unanimously passed to reduce the food sales tax.
Beth Bentley in Jefferson City has the story.
Republicans and Democrats alike voted yes to cut the food sales tax... but not without some debate.
Representative Jim Murphy brought milk and orange juice into the chamber to prove his point.
The House has one more vote before the bill heads to the Senate.
Reporting from the capitol, I'm Beth Bentley.
