Senate Rejects Sales Tax Proposal

The North Dakota Senate rejects a measure to get rid of sales tax on clothing. Two of North Dakota's neighboring states don't have a tax on clothing, but Minnesota is now considering adding sales tax to clothing purchases over 100 dollars. Senator George Sinner says North Dakota has yet to touch a single item dealing with sales tax.

Sinner, "We can absolutely effect our tourism trade in North Dakota in a very positive way, we can do something we've talked about for months, we can provide tax relief to every single North Dakotan."

The bill failed by a vote of 14 to 33.
