It would raise the state sales tax from 6 percent to 7 percent, add a corporate revenues tax of 0.00045 percent and in 2018 establish new income tax tiers cutting the current rate 20 percent.

"I hate the fact that I have to sign a proclamation to extend the session for one day", Justice said in a post on his Twitter account.
