BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Gov. Jack Dalrymple's proposed state income tax cut has been rejected in the North Dakota House.

Representatives favor a bigger income tax cut than the governor wants. Dalrymple's proposal sought to cut North Dakota individual income taxes by $50 million over two years.

The governor's bill would have reduced the top tax rate from 4.86 percent to 4.65 percent, and the lowest rate from 1.84 percent to 1.63 percent.

Representatives voted Monday to defeat the governor's tax bill, 67-24.

A separate bill to cut individual and corporate income taxes is still pending in the Senate Appropriations Committee.

It would cut individual income taxes by $130 million over two years, and provide a $15 million corporate income tax cut.
