Commerce Secretary Defends Tax Proposals

Rhode Island Commerce Secretary Stefan Pryor is defending a pair of tax increase proposals that are drawing criticism.  Pryor last night told the legislature's House Finance Committee that the new property tax on luxury second homes would raise 12-million-dollars a year to help close a budget deficit.  He also says a private home rental tax would help fund an aggressive new marketing initiative aimed at generating more tourism in the state.
