Supporters of a new state tax credit for low-income working people say it should take effect this year as scheduled.

The credit will cost the state tax revenue. But supporters say it has other economic and social benefits that make it worthwhile.

The state's earned income tax credit complements a federal tax credit and is designed to put more money back in the pockets of low-income workers.

A few lawmakers have suggested delaying the tax credit to help the state's financial situation. But that idea has not advanced in the Legislature.
