Tax-break repeal still on table, Bookout says

The Arkansas Senate plans to try and revive an effort to repeal a tax break for truckers that’s set to take effect later this year.

Senate President Paul Bookout says the Senate will vote Wednesday on a procedural maneuver that would allow the repeal to be introduced even though the deadline for filing bills has passed.

Bookout says he supports the effort but says he’s unsure whether there are enough votes to allow the Senate to suspend its rules and consider the repeal.

Top Republican senators say they’re opposed to suspending the rules, which would require at least 24 votes in the 35-member Senate.

Legislators had hoped to rescind the tax break after the trucking lobby withdrew support for a diesel tax increase for road repairs.

The headline uses the word "appeal." The correct word is "repeal."

I don't think ADG knows the difference between appeal and repeal.
