Submission + - Internet tax approved by Louisiana House (wwltv.com)

Stinky Litter Box writes: "WWL-TV in New Orleans reports that the Louisiana House voted 81-9 on Thursday to propose that a "15-cent monthly surcharge should be levied on Internet access across Louisiana to fight online criminal activity." Can you say "slippery slope?" The good news is that Gov. Jindal opposes such a tax. Full disclosure: I grew up in south Louisiana and worked for WWL-TV in the late '70s."
