On Friday, May 18, Sen. Carona added a floor amendment to HB 2510 by Martinez that would permit an additional 1% sales tax in North Texas. The new maximum tax rate of 9 1/4% would be the 7th highest state-local combined rate in the nation. Call or e-mail your representative RIGHT NOW and tell them that Texas relies too heavily on regressive sales taxes and to REJECT THE CARONA 1% SALES TAX AMENDMENT TO HB 2510.
