Arise calls for tax expenditure report in ethics reform

In testimony at a public hearing before the Alabama Legislature, Arise state coordinator Kimble Forrister called for adding a tax expenditure report to the slate of ethics reforms the body is considering in a special session. More than 40 states offer a one-stop list of who receives tax breaks, in what amount, and for what purpose, Forrister told lawmakers. "Like a state spending report, a tax expenditure report reveals our state's priorities -- and who stands to benefit."
