Arkansas closer to NO sales tax on food

Arkansas closer to removing sales tax on food....YES!!!
"Glover is the second legislator this year to call for phasing out the tax, and he said a focus on eliminating the tax by Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mike Beebe and Republican Asa Hutchinson shows there's momentum for the proposal.

Beebe has said he wants to phase out the grocery tax over time and Hutchinson has said he wants to eliminate the tax outright.

"I don't think there's any question that it's going to happen this next session, no matter who's in that office," said Glover, D-Carlisle. "It's going to happen. There's no if, ands or buts about it."
