Tennessee Politics Roundup

Strip Clubs and adult bookstores in Tennessee will soon have to charge a $2.00 on top of what they already charge for admission to cover the latest tax idea to come out of Nashville (home of the self-titled "world's largest adult books store"). Currently, if 50% of the material at a business is classified as "adult" then the establishment is listed as an Adult Business. The lawmakers are also looking at lowering the percentage from 50 to 40, or even 25%. I know of some gas stations that could then be labeled "adult businesses".

The proceeds from this tax will go to lobby Hollywood to use The Volunteer State as a filming location....but, only if the movie will feature the ''best side of woman.'
