Sales tax cut possibly on the way

ILLINOIS (WCIA) -- Lawmakers want to cut sales taxes on personal care products by 5%. 

The tax code already considers diapers, baby wipes, condoms, and pads as luxury items.

This plan could drop that sales tax from over six percent to 1%.

That's the same tax often used on groceries and medicine.

Supporters think it could help families already on a slim budget.

Lawmakers approved a similar tax cut on tampons in 2016. 

Senators expect to discuss this idea next week.
