The House unanimously passed H.B. 26 Tuesday, concurring in Senate amendments. The bill would establish a sales tax holiday on Nov. 20 and 21 for the first $2,500 of the price of tangible personal property. The exemption would apply to each sale of tangible personal property except vehicles.
The Senate passed the bill unanimously Monday.
The bill was introduced by Sept. 28 by Rep. Clay Schexnayder, R-Gonzales. It will now go to the governor for approval.
