Cross submitted his own proposal today that would gradually repeal the corporate income tax hike that took effect in January.  His plan would scale back the current seven percent rate by one percent in January and then back to four point eight percent in 2014.  Cross says the repeal is just one step in the process of creating jobs, rebuilding the economy, and attracting more businesses to the state.
