Two identical bills have been pre-filed in Frankfort for next year's General Assembly session that, if passed, would allow people to buy school supplies, computers, clothing and recreational equipment, without having to pay the state's six-percent sales tax rate the first weekend in August.

The sales tax break would not apply to the most expensive clothes and technology.

For example, the proposed legislation would limit the cost of clothing to $100 per item, school supplies to $500 and computers to $1,200.

One of the bills was filed by Democratic Representative Rick G. Nelson of Middlesboro.  Another was put forth by Democratic Representative Fitz Steele of Hazard and Julie Raque Adams, a Republican from Louisville.
