Some more budget thoughts...

Well it's going to be interesting to say the least during the session but here are a few thoughts.

-- Keno/Video Poker. There was an argument for the Daily game that it would help eliminate or greatly reduce policy/numbers as an illegal gaming activity. Does anyone really think these video poker machines at all of these bars are just for entertainment purposes only. Lets keep in bars, but lets bring it above board.

-- Hospital Tax exemptions for non-profits. Unless X% of your services over the past 3 years were charity (also the 'cost' of charity calculated for this should not be retail) you have to start paying property taxes.

-- Cigarette Taxes, raise the tax on all tobacco products.

-- Every drink served has a .10 additional tax added on.

More thoughts to come.
