Lawmakers propose legislation to offer tax relief to beauty salons

Two members of Congress teamed up Friday to introduce a bipartisan bill that would offer tax credits for income from tips to beauty salon owners and workers.

Rep.

Another female victim also remains in the hospital, in critical condition, after being wounded in the attack.

Officials said Gonzalez, who is being treated in the hospital for injuries sustained during the incident, used a semiautomatic pistol to commit the killings. Orange police released a photo of him
