Two tax increase bills were voted out of the Ways & Means Committee of the Louisiana Legislature this morning, with help from several North Louisiana Representatives.
HB 777, which would raise the tax on gasoline by 25 cents, was passed on a 7-3 vote.
Haughton Republican Henry Burns voted FOR the bill.
HB 778, a one cent statewide sales tax increase was passed unanimously by the same committee less than an hour later.
