The longest special session in Arkansas history could make history once again. House Bill 1030 calls for a seven-eighth`s cent sales tax increase. If passed, it would be the largest tax increase in Arkansas history. The tax also targets services that currently do not pay sales tax, including dry-cleaning and tattooing. "We came together with what we have now. Is it everything that I like? No, but it is what we felt like we could get through and meet this court mandate," says bill supporter Sen. Tim Wooldridge (D-Paragould). Lawmakers admit the bill is far from perfect, but say they`ll study ways to tax Arkansans in a more progressive way. "We want to be sure we`re in a position to say, `We had to hold our nose and do this today, but we are going to engage in some progressive tax reform and this will not happen again,`" says Rep. Joyce Elliott (D-Little Rock).
