 What do you know? At least the legislature has found something else to tax other than tobacco.


And what are the costs to society for those who partake in adult entertainment materials and services? No one really seems to care.


I hope this bill passes. But as the fiscal note explains, when taxes are increased on a service or product it stands to reason less people are going to purchase it. Thus the sales tax revenue projections for this bill will not likely materialize.
