East Bay legislators weigh in on sales tax

Two East Bay legislators will unveil bills today to lower the state's 7 percent sales tax.   Representative Jan Malik and Senator Walter Felag co-chaired a special commission last year that considered the possibility of eliminating the tax.  They say their bills represent issues discussed during the commission's hearings.  According to the Tax Foundation, California has the highest sales tax in the country with Rhode Island in a five-way tie for second highest.
