Rep. Jim Walsh speaks in favor of exempting Medicaid and Medicare providers from B&O tax increases proposed in bill

Rep. Jim Walsh, R-Aberdeen, shares remarks during late-night House floor debate. The 19th District lawmaker discusses how increasing taxes on health care providers will cause them to leave the state. Walsh says an amendment to exempt them from B&O tax increases could make a bad bill, better. Amendment 835 to House Bill 2158 failed on a party-line vote of 41-56.
