Last week, the House approved Governor Haslam’s plan for a modest cut in the state’s grocery tax. They also passed the Governor’s proposal to raise the exemption level on the inheritance tax.

But lawmakers have their own designs for the excess revenue, and they hope to get some of them into the budget.
