California Golf Tax Defeated

The proposed Caifornia golf tax has been defeated.

After 45 hours of debate, the California state legislature finally passed its $143 billion budget Thursday, and the proposed golf tax -- which we wrote about Jan. 26 -- was not part of the final plan. The proposed measure would have added an 8-10 percent tax on all purchases golf related.
