MO Lawmaker Proposes to Eliminate Tax on Diapers

(MISSOURINET) – Diapers can take a big bite out of a family’s budget. State Representative Patty Lewis, a Democrat from Kansas City, is proposing to exempt diapers from sales tax. She visited a diaper bank in her district – inspiring her to want to file the bill. Under the legislation, diapers for children and adults would be included.

The projected cost to the state is about 16 to 28-million dollars.
