Yellowstone Penny Sales Tax Fails

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — A proposal to impose a 1-cent state sales tax in Yellowstone National Park to raise money for park infrastructure projects has failed in the Wyoming Legislature.

The bill offered by Republican Rep. Keith Gingery, of Jackson, failed to receive enough votes in the state House for introduction this session.

The tax money collected would have helped pay for projects such as new roads and sewer lines in the national park.

A Park Service spokesman had said he couldn’t think of any instance where a state dedicated its sales tax revenue to a national park.

Gingery tells the Powell Tribune (http://bit.ly/AweVVP) that the bill couldn’t overcome the belief that Yellowstone isn’t Wyoming’s responsibility to keep up.
