Bright & Early: Ebb And Flow Edition

Good morning, Nashville. Tennessee lawmakers are all about finding creative ways to boost revenue with the current state of the economy, and they’re now proposing a tax hike for tourists. The state’s hotel tax is nearly 17% already, which is one of the highest rates in the country. The new proposal would tack on an additional tax on continental breakfasts and is expected to bring in $1-2 million if passed.
