LINCOLN, NE (AP) - Nebraska Lawmakers are set to vote again on a failed attempt to repeal a city sales tax law.
The law allows cities to raise their local sales taxes by a half cent, with voter approval.
Omaha Senator Ernie Chambers says the bill disproportionately affects the poor.
It passed last year despite a veto by Governor Dave Heineman.
Chambers introduced the repeal bill earlier this year, but it was held in committee.
This week, he filed a motion to attach the measure to another tax bill.
Lawmakers fell one vote short of the 25 needed to add the amendment.
A motion was filed to reconsider the vote.
