Bentley promotes sales tax holiday

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) – Ala. Gov. Robert Bentley wants people to take advantage of this weekend’s sales tax holiday for severe weather preparedness.

He is urging residents to stock emergency kits.

The holiday runs Friday through Sunday and waives the 4 percent state sales tax on common disaster supplies costing $60 or less.

Generators costing $1,000 or less are also exempted
