SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- House Republicans say they have the votes they need to pass a $90 million tax cut.

Now they'll see if Gov. Jon Huntsman and Republicans who control the Senate are willing to go along with their plan. Huntsman didn't include any tax cuts in his proposed budget, but the Senate says it is willing to consider them.

The House plans calls for a $15 million property tax cut for homeowners and businesses, a $15 million personal income tax cut for those who are independently employed and pay for their own health insurance and about $60 million for further tax cuts in other areas.

House leadership says it has not decided how to offer the other $60 million in cuts.
