KR: Sales tax property tax swap

The sales tax swap that Patrick has supported in past sessions seems like the direct route to victory, especially when it’s tied to the completion of either Senate Bill 2 or House Bill 2

This idea of a sales tax-property tax swap isn’t new, but it could be new enough to buy the Republicans some political cover as they close in on passing priority legislation this session.

Everyone has a sidelines seat for this one.

And, depending on where you are sitting, this could just be the Hail Mary pass that is going to put the leadership over the goal line for this session. Or, from the other side of the stadium, it’s an acknowledgment that carving school districts out of the two property tax relief bills is a very bad idea.
