State lawmakers will jump into spring break a day earlier than originally planned, with no General Assembly session Friday. That move is to give legislators more time to iron-out sticking points in a proposed tax reform plan.

The Georgia Music Hall of Fame Authority Board today/Thursday rejected all four cities wanting to host the museum. But, the door remains open for the City of Macon. After the state put the museum up for bid, Athens, Dunwoody, Macon and Woodstock submitted plans. The board didn’t like any of them.

State lawmakers were unable to come to an agreement Wednesday evening on a tax reform plan, so work will continue Thursday. A Republican-proposed measure would cut the state income tax from 6 to 4.5 percent. But it would add taxes on auto repair, car sales between individuals and some telecommunication services.
