Income Tax Vote Expected in House Tonight

House Speaker Andy Dillon (D-Redford Twp.) told reporters his chamber will vote on an income tax proposal Thursday night.

Beginning last Friday, the House voted on a plan to increase the state's personal income tax from 3.9 percent to 4.6 percent. After several votes, the plan never got enough support to pass.

No Republicans voted for it. Some Democrats never registered a vote.

Since then, Senate Republicans put forth a plan for a 4.3 percent income tax with more than $1 billion in budget cuts.

Now Dillon says he has an income tax plan that could get bi-partisan support in the House.

Watch News 10 at 11 p.m. and check later tonight for results of the possible vote.

    They news will be reporting tomorrow that it was withdrawn by the democrats. The rep who left for the camping trip is missing nothing. When he returns, he will be able to pick up his voting no on the tax increases.

    How many times do they have to vote on the same tax increases and not get enough votes. Dillon should start pushing bills through that would make everyone would be forced to vote yes. Salary freezes and cuts to the house and senate would be a good starting point.

    They should be thinking spending cuts and not tax increases.
