House Bill 360 – Sales, use tax, food exemption

On January 24th, Representative Priscilla Giddings (R-White Bird) introduced House Bill 360 (H0360) as a personal bill. This is a method legislators have to move bills forward that doesn’t require a committee introduction; it is often used when a committee chairman refuses to introduce a bill into a committee. Just a couple days later, on the 27th, the bill was assigned to the Ways and Means Committee in the House. This bill removes the current tax(es) on food, with the exception of packaged food.
