Pass the capital gains tax

Senate Bill 5096, the capital gains tax, is the only currently viable option available to both generate badly needed additional revenue and to do so in a way that does not further penalize people at the lowest income levels. The state sales and property taxes are the only other available options right now for additional funds; and those are grossly unfair to people at the bottom of the income spectrum. The capital gains tax needs a "push" from citizens to assure that it is passed and creates an opportunity for the state to have more revenue but get it only from people in the top 1% of income. Please help move this forward from the Senate Rules Committee to the Senate floor for a vote before the cut-off.
