At a press conference, Rep. Luxenberg spoke in favor of SB 216, An Act Expanding The Sales Tax Exemption To Include Feminine Hygiene Products And Disposable Or Reusable Diapers. She is co-sponsor of the legislation under consideration by the Public Health Committee. The bill seeks to exclude from the state sales tax, disposable and non-disposable diapers, as well as feminine hygiene products such as tampons. Luxenberg notes that there are similar products among the 120 currently exempt from the tax.
