By cutting business taxes, Florida lawmakers can keep anti-tax hike pledge, Grover Norquist says

“No one is raising taxes,” Rep. Fred Hawkins, R-St. Cloud, a signer of the pledge, said in a released statement. “But, we are leveling the playing field for mom and pop, small businesses by collecting sales taxes already levied. We are not raising taxes. We are collecting taxes that are already levied by law.”
