This week’s infographic looks at the Democrat’s votes on creating an income tax to fund a flawed family leave insurance plan. There were 4 roll call votes that contained language for an income tax. They are as follows:

  • Roll Call Vote #54 – Ought to Pass as Amended on HB712, the House version of the income tax family leave plan.
  • Roll Call Vote #129 – Ought to Pass on SB1, the Senate version of the income tax family leave plan.
  • Roll Call Vote #158 – Adopt amendment #1403h to HB2, which inserted the income tax family leave plan in to the trailer bill to the House budget.
  • Roll Call Vote #164 – Ought to Pass as Amended on HB2, the final vote on the House trailer bill, which as amended contains the income tax family leave plan.

Of the 233 House Democrats,

183 (79%) voted for the income tax proposal all 4 times.
217 (93%) voted for the income tax at least 3 times.
229 (98%) voted for the income tax at least 2 times.
231 (99%) voted for the income tax at least once.

There were two members who did not have recorded votes on the income tax proposals. One has been absent due to health conditions, and the other was Speaker Shurtleff, who did not cast a vote while presiding over the House session(s).

Below, you’ll find a listing the vote by each member of the Democrat caucus on those 4 roll call votes.
