SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Republicans who control the House and Senate have agreed on a $210-million tax cut this year.

It's still not clear exactly which taxes will be cut.

The $210 million figure represents a compromise between the two bodies of the Legislature. The House had been seeking a $300 million tax cut while the Senate stated it wanted a tax cut closer to $150 million.

Governor Huntsman has said he'd like a tax cut near $100 million. The legislative compromise comes with little more than a week left in the 45-day general session.
