Senate Candidate Pushes Reduction In Sales Tax

Republican U.S. Senate candidate  Geoff Diehl is pressing the case for lowering the state sales tax back  to five-percent.  

He's supporting the collection of the additional  eleven-thousand signatures needed to get the question on the November  ballot.  

The Massachusetts Retailers Association already collected about  100-thousand signatures needed to qualify for the ballot, but Diehl  says more signatures are necessary because the Legislature has failed to  act.  

The candidate says reducing the sales tax helps consumers, as well as stores  competing online and with New Hampshire retailers.
