UPDATE: IT WORKED!! SUCCESS! Due to the overwhelming response of the arts community, Assemblymember Mike Gatto has withdrawn the bill that would have added a 7.5% sales tax to theatre tickets! The bill was scheduled to be voted on by the Committee for Revenue and Taxation today, but was pulled from the calendar by Assemblymember Gatto before the Committee could vote.
SEE? Change CAN happen when you TAKE ACTION! This is a victory for the arts community! Out thanks to all who SPOKE OUT in PROTEST! You were HEARD!
