Starting Friday, groceries statewide will be 1% cheaper. That’s because the legislature this year passed a bill reducing the state’s 4% food tax to 3% this September.

The legislation passed unanimously in the 2023 legislative session. Rep. Penni McClammy says lawmakers finally listened to citizens.

“For me, it was a no-brainer. We’re taxing something that we need to live,” McClammy (D- Montgomery) said.

After the first percent decrease Friday, another percent drop is set for next September, contingent on 3.5% revenue growth to the Education Budget. If that growth doesn’t happen, the percentage will come off in the following year the budget does grow by 3.5%.

Rep. McClammy thinks it’s likely the second percent will come off next year.

“Right now, the way things are growing with the budget, it does seem like we should have enough money.”
