(CBS) — A state senator from Chicago wants to dramatically reduce the tax on disposable diapers – even though it could mean a loss of millions of dollars in tax revenue for the state.
State Senator Martin Sandoval proposed this last year – and he’s trying again: to reduce the tax on disposable diapers and wipes to 1 percent. Down from 6 and a quarter percent.
Now, 5 percent goes to the state. With Sandoval’s proposal for just 1 percent, he would have it all go to the municipality.
