Alabama's Common Sense Conservative Agenda
The House Republican Caucus unveils its "Common Sense Conservative" agenda. It includes a bill to raise the threshold where small businesses have to make monthly estimated state income tax payments from $1,000 to $2,500. That could affect 6,000 business owners. Another bill would make filing state business taxes easier by creating an online tax filing system for all taxes. Other bills in the package include a tax credit to encourage adoptions and a ban on former legislators lobbying lawmakers for two years after leaving office. The Legislature convenes January 14.
