The first measure, sponsored by Baton Rouge Rep. Ted James, would keep from having a state income tax deduction impacted by certain disaster losses in tax years 2015 through 2017.
The second proposal, carried by Baton Rouge Rep. Patricia Smith, would edge up a 4.5-cent monthly tax on cellphones enacted last year to 5 cents. The dollars pay for technology assistance and services for people who are deaf.
Gov. John Bel Edwards is expected to sign the bills into law.
