   JOKE    THOUGHT    OPINION
Today’s edition of the Joke of the Day has a bark that’s worse than its bite!


"Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: 'What! You too? I thought I was the only one.'"

~ C. S. Lewis (1898 -- 1963)


   THIS WEEK'S POLL
The chairman of the Wyoming House Revenue Committee wants to repeal many sales tax exemptions, saying they did not attract enough new businesses or create the jobs that were expected, and Wyoming needs the revenue. A spokesman for the Wyoming Business Council says the exemptions are important in getting new businesses to come to Wyoming. Legislators rejected an attempt to repeal exemptions during the last legislative session.   Should sales tax exemptions in Wyoming be repealed?



State lawmakers have considered a variety of ways to make up Wyoming’s funding shortfall, which is due to a downturn in the minerals industry. Wyoming does not have an income tax.  Should Wyoming impose an income tax if it would cover the state’s shortfall and also lower the sales tax?
