Jeff Beatty on Tax Reform

Republican Senate challenger


Abolishing state income tax would act as economic stimulus

Kerry slammed Beatty's support of Question 1 on the state ballot, the proposal to abolish the state income tax. "My prayer is that Jeff Beatty's position will be soundly rejected by this state. To do what Jeff Beatty says we should do would be calamitous," he said.

But Beatty said the abolition of the state income tax would act as an economic stimulus for families and businesses and would bring more jobs and opportunities to the state.
