Alabama Arise statement on House defeat of grocery tax bill

"We are deeply disappointed that only 54 state representatives voted to bring the 'untax groceries' bill, House Bill 1, up for floor debate, while 42 voted against it. The Yes votes were 53 Democrats and one Republican, Rep. Spencer Collier of Irvington. All 42 No votes came from Republicans."
