INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Republican leader of the Indiana House says tax cuts
being pushed by gubernatorial candidates might not make it through the
chamber next year.
House Speaker Brian Bosma said Thursday that lawmakers had already cut some
taxes last year that they need to pay for before considering new tax cuts.
Bosma said political candidates often take a short-term view when making
promises on the campaign trail.
Republican gubernatorial candidate Mike Pence has called for a 10 percent
cut in the state’s income tax, while Democratic nominee John Gregg is
backing an end to the sales tax on gasoline and the elimination of the
corporate income tax for companies based in Indiana.
