House Hasn't Sent GOP Health Care Bill to Senate

In recent years, lawmakers exempted landscaping services from sales tax as they have expanded the sales tax base to include more services.

The rate would stay at 6 percent, but consumers would have to pay the tax on their cell phone bills, gym memberships, and on construction labor up to $40,000. Four senators were reported absent and did not vote on it.

Justice asked lawmakers to "stop the silliness", again calling the Senate Democrats' decision to vote against the bill "unbelievable".

Members of the House Finance Committee voted nearly unanimously in favor of their version of a revenue bill Thursday afternoon, one that looks drastically different than one the Senate approved earlier this week. Donna Boley, R-Pleasants.

The increase in aid under the Democratic plan after two years would be $400 million.

House members were expecting to approve the bill on 2nd and 3rd readings in short order, providing their version of a plank that could be key to settling on a state budget for the coming fiscal year. "That's your prerogative. I hope to goodness we'll get to a solution and get to a solution very quickly". He said for the 2018 fiscal year, he estimates revenue will be in excess of $100 million.

Boley also likes the idea of eventually eliminating the state income tax.

"You've got your leg jammed down a crocodile's mouth, and you're wondering whether you go to Wendy's or Applebees tonight ...", Justice said. Its leaders, which also include Governor Rick Snyder of MI and Governor Doug Ducey of Arizona, deliberately chose some participants from states with influential Republican senators who would become key players in a federal healthcare overhaul. "A priority needs to be for taking care of individuals on fixed incomes making $100,000 or less". "Not the wealthiest citizens in the state of West Virginia, but the citizens that are struggling". Tax revenue from retail store purchases is declining, he said, as online purchasing grows.

One potential compromise for Senate Republicans would be to push the timetable for phasing out Medicaid expansion funding, which would help appease Portman and other senators in expansion states. "In terms of inflation adjusted dollars this government will shrink this year, which should please those who like the rest of us West Virginians have to live within our means".

"There are about 312,000 people in the state that receive Social Security benefits", said Sen.

Early this month the Legislature went into session for two days without being presented a budget bill.

Thursday marked the sixth day of the special session.

"Here it is the fourth day and we still don't have a budget bill", Boley said.

He also directed his message toward House Republicans, urging them to support the bill. Barbara Bollier of Mission Hills says she's not ready to say "no" just yet.

As of Wednesday evening, however, the bill was still being drafted and had not yet been assigned a Senate bill number.

Azinger said they are looking at bills to increase DMV fees, increase road tolls and change the state fuel excise tax.

"I chose to run as a Democrat ... and I've carried that flag proudly", he said. Overriding the governor would take a two-thirds vote in both the Senate and House. The same four senators who were absent for the initial vote were marked as absent for this vote. Lawmakers usually suspend rules that require waiting periods before holding floor votes or waiting periods for moving bills between the House and the Senate.
