Originally introduced in 2017, SB 17 is intended to eliminate school property taxes. To supplement the lost revenue, the bill also proposed to increase the sales tax rate from 6% to 7% and personal income tax from 3.07% to 4.95%. The last action taken was on February 22 when the bill was referred to the Finance Committee.
