Legislators push for tax reform in ’16

Freshman state Rep. Joel Bomgar said Republicans control a supermajority in both the House and Senate and there should be no excuse not to pass conservative reforms this session.

Near the top of the list of things he hopes to see is major tax reform.

“We ought to be able to get through a major tax cut and deliver what the Republicans tried to do in the 2015 session,” he said. “Nothing stimulates the economy like leaving money in the productive section.

“I just hope we go big and we go bold,” Bomgar continued. “It’s pointless to have a Republican supermajority in the House and Senate if you don’t use that supermajority to accomplish big conservative things.”
