NC House lawmakers balk at new version of tax plan

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - North Carolina House members are opposing an apparent effort to remove amendments to a tax plan that would add a half billion dollars in deductions.


The House Appropriations Committee refused Wednesday to debate a new version of a tax reform bill that removed an amendment passed Tuesday by another committee. That amendment lifted a $25,000 limit on deductions for charitable giving and mortgage



Lawmakers of both parties joined to vote against a new version of the bill.


Bill sponsor Rep. David Lewis of Dunn said Tuesday that the amendment would hurt the efforts at tax reform and require raising overall rates. He was not present at the Appropriations Committee meeting Wednesday.


Lawmakers say they're not sure what will happen to the bill.
