Senator Hutchinson Issues Statement on House Bill 542

Senator Scott Hutchinson issued the following statement on House Bill 542, which amends the Tax Reform Code as part of the Fiscal Year 2017-18 budget package.  The measure was narrowly approved by the Senate 26-24 today (July 27), with Senator Hutchinson voting in the negative.

“Rather than spending more of the people’s hard-earned money, we should be living within our means.  I think it is shortsighted to reach deeper into the taxpayers’ pockets, particularly on energy consumers and natural gas producers who already pay high taxes.”
