BUFFALO, Wyo. — Wyoming lawmakers will consider a bill to levy a 1
The Casper Star-Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/2wWlTJ1 ) that the Joint Revenue Committee agreed on Tuesday to consider the tax bill at its December meeting.
Tourism officials presented a slightly different plan to the committee that would levy the tax on only the two tax-classification groups covering hotels, bars, restaurants and arts and recreation businesses.
The tax revenue would make the Wyoming Office of Tourism self-sufficient as it would replace about $13 million the agency receives from the Legislature each year.
Tourism officials say any additional funding the office might receive from the tax would be directed toward national and international marketing.
