It appears the state Legislature isn't ready to finish work repealing a much-criticized services tax.

Both the House and Senate canceled sessions that were tentatively set for Tuesday.

The sessions would have meant interrupting a two-week break held each November. It's still possible the House and Senate could be called back into session later in the two-week period.

Lawmakers are working to repeal a sales tax on some businesses set to kick in December 1st. Negotiations on a final fix continue between Democrats in the House and the Republican-led Senate.

Legislators might also be called back in to try and save a scheduled January 15th presidential primary that's been derailed by a court challenge.
