B'way Tax Nixed

Governor Patterson and the NY State Senate just announced the new "emergency" budget will not--I repeat, not--include any new taxes on Broadway show tickets.

The Executive Budget would have imposed a sales tax on entertainment-related consumer spending, including but not limited to, movie theaters, live theatre, concerts, golf, skiing, bowling and others. This proposal is no longer recommended.
So it's not just the Broadway lobby that's happy today.

Well there goes that idea.

Thank you, Kevin. I was indeed thinking Variety, but my powers failed me. Well done!
