Senate yanks sales tax cover for tickets
The Senate just decided to zap the sales tax exemption on Super Bowl tickets. Sen. Mike Hariodopolos said the reduction to the state will be insignificant. It got tacked on Sen. Nan Rich's bill on tax examptions for non-profit hospital laundries.
And to make up for it? Reducing sales taxes on mobile phone sales. The vote was 38-0 on HB 1059, which covered non-profit hospital laundries.
