What would happen next

Alabama House passes plan to remove sales tax on groceries; Senate approval would send measure to voters – al.com

Okay, it still has to go through the Senate. Let’s say that happens.

Rep. John Knight, D-Montgomery, the plan’s sponsor, estimated that 80 percent of Alabama households would save money or break even under the plan, while 20 percent would pay more in taxes.

So then it goes to the voters. And it loses, because the Stan Pates and Roy Moores of the world will go on and on about this being a “tax increase”. This always happens.
